Please relax. The vaccine Rabivax is absolutely safe. There has been no reported case of rabies disease occurrence due to the vaccine intake until now.

You are already aware that it contains the inactivated virus. I am glad that you took the vaccine.

Please get your mind off it. You are absolutely safe and healthy.
