Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Rabies vaccine is given by intramuscular route.
It is given on the anterio lateral part of the deltoid.

In order to reduce the cost of the vaccination intradermal multi site vaccination using a fraction of the intramuscular vaccine are developed.

Only cell derived vaccines that meet the WHO requirements are considered for intradermal use.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Intramuscular in upper arm is the standard..
(there were old large volume ones given subcutaneously / multiple site intra-dermal preparations - not available now)

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
