Thanks for your query.
Vaccine looses its efficacy if proper temperature is not maintained.
Rabies vaccination needs to be stored at 2 to 8 degrees.
There is no point in keeping vaccine out for such a long period.
I suggest you to take consultation from your doctor as repetition of vaccine will be needed.

Wishing your baby good health.
God bless....

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

No the vaccine is not effective.

Rabies vaccine should be stored at 2-8 degrees centigrade in the refrigerator.
At that temperature it is stable for 3 years.
Why did they keep the vaccine out of refrigerator for such a long time?
Please consult your doctor for repetition of vaccination.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
