Hi I had a dog bite in India & had to travel to Kolkata hospital for my first injection of rabipur anti virus. The dog owner showed me a certificate for the dog's rabies injection. Since then i have followed the required dosage injections @ 3, 7 & 14 days. I will have my last injection in the Uk on Feb 12th.
Should i have had a Globulin injection as well? Can i take this now after 14 days?
Is there anything else i need to do?
Yours sincerely

Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

After going through your query, I would like to comment the following:

1. It has been 2 weeks since dog bite, and you do not have any symptoms.

2. The dog was certified yo be vaccinated for rabies.

3. In such a scenario, you need not worry.

4. However do complete your schedule of post exposure prophylaxis till 12th Feb.

5. There is no need of taking rabies immunoglobulin in your case.

Be assured and just relax.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be glad to answer any follow up queries.
