Hi Manish,

The complete immunization schedule for a patient who has had a dog bite consists of 5 doses of Rabipur vaccine . The dosage schedule is one intramuscular injection of Rabipur on days 0, 3, 7 14 and 28. So if you have taken the first dose on 26 March, you need to take the second dose on day 3 (29 March), the third dose on day 7 (2 April) and so on.

The immunization should start as soon as possible after the dog bite and the immunization schedule needs to be strictly followed.
