Brief Answer: nothing will happen. Detailed Answer: Hi, you have completed 0,3,7,14 days doses of RABIPUR. most important If you fail to take the fifth dose, nothing will happen. You can take it whenever is available later. Already you are immune by 4 th dose. 5th one is just a booster. Its just a minor mistake. nothing is going to happen That is just a minor mistake. nothing is going to happen. As far as your immunity is concerned, you are safe. Dont be concerned too much about minor things. ALL THE BEST Hope this helped.
