1. If a stray dog tried to bite, but did not actually bite, you do not require another vaccination.
2. Vaccination for rabies gives immunity for two to three years. Thereafter you need to repeat vaccination if you have exposure again (post-exposure).
3. Regular prophylactic (pre-exposure)vaccination for rabies every three years in your case (with low risk of exposure) is not recommended.
THANKS sir, bt m not sure abt the bite there is a small ( 1 cm ) cut on my feet, nd i feel i think it is not a dog bite, i have consult wid some persons, and as per them it wont be a dog's bite. the location of bite is so awkward. i was on bike that time nd when i inspected the wound ( within 5 min) blood was dry and there was no sign of saliva and the cut was surrounded by some minor scartches
Please help in answering my query. My husband got bitten by a suspected rabid dog, after 3 days, the dog died. While on his o day, 3rd day and 7th day of anti-rabies (verorab) treatment, we shared foods, drinks and kissed. My question is, could it be possible that i might be infected or got the rabies from my husband, because his treatment is not yet over? Is it not safe to have sex while under medication? Please help, I need your answers, I am not feeling well now, is it psychological?
My husband was given post vaccination after 3 days of bite, he was confined for 3 days and was given anti rabbies and tetanus as his first dose and IV antibiotics. The antibiotics given was for his cellulitis due to the infection of the wound bite. It s been 25 days now and the cat does not show rabies symptoms meaning our pet cat is healthy,however our cat has a unhealed wound with pus in his leg for 2 months already,the wound probably from a cat fight and leaking on it everyday. My husband is not given a second,third and fourth dose of his anti rabbies vaccine. Is there a big chance that he can have a rabbies inside his body given that he wasn t able to get the full anti rabbies dose and please take note his IV antibiotics for 3 days are specifically meant only for his cellulitis?. If the possibility is high how long can the rabbies show its full strength?. He was bitten by the same pet cat for a four times already started March of this year and both my husband and the cat are healthy, only this fifth bite on June 7 started our problem. The cat is healthy until now, my husband is healed of his cellulitis. Thank you very much for this and hoping you can contribute much of help to my family.
Hello, I have a question regarding rabies vaccination process, and i would really appreciate if someone could clear my doubts. I have been bitten by a street dog here in New Delhi. I was bitten on my right leg, and there was slight bleeding, not very much but slight.. Almost half an hour after being bitten i was administered a dose of Rabipur vaccine as well as a tetanus shot. I have also gotten a second shot of Rabipur on day 3 and am on my way to receiving a full course of rabies shots on days 7, 14, and 28. I am, however, worried about not getting the immunoglobulin. I have read on a few websites (CDC and WHO), that immunoglobulin is essential for Category III wounds. I am really really worried now. Those websites also mentioned that if someone has received previous post exposure treatment, then the immunoglobulin is not required. Well, i have been bitten by my pet dog twice before and both times i got full course of vaccine. But that was about 15 years ago. Does the not receiving the immunoglobulin bit applies to me as well? I know it s a rather long story but i would really appreciate if someone could take time to address my doubts.
Greetings! Brother, I was bitten by dog on 14th January 2014 in the morning around 6. a.m. Around 6.45 a.m I went to clinic and they wiped it. Then around 10 a.m on the day I was given a tetanus injection and started taking antibiotic for a week. Evening around 5 p.m I was given a anti rabies vaccination. I was given anti rabies vaccination for 14 days consequatively around nipple and then after 10 days 1 injection then 10 days after 1 injection and after 10 days last injection. So total 17 injections around the nipple. That means, January - 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27,\ Feb 6, 16, 26 dates I was given a anti rabies vaccination. On 16th Feb. I had a food poison due to the juice (awakadu) which I was taken outside. Again I was given anti biotic. I completed it. After food poison I feel in my mouth I am getting saliva. Doctor checked my blood they told I have a 108 sugar and 225 is a colostratral. Yet dog is alive and owner of the dog says it is in a good condition. Can you please tell me if possible the reasons of saleva I am getting it. I am also not feeling hungry. If time permits kindly reply brother. With respects, moses

I am going to Cambodia on November 3rd on a mission trip. On Sept 20, I began my series of required vaccinations. I received the Hep A and B vaccines that day. About 4 hours after getting the vaccines, I began having pain in my right shoulder, collarbone and down my right arm. I still have pain in these areas, sometimes mild and sometimes moderate to severe. In the last week I have developed pain in my right jaw, temple, ear and the right side of my neck. Is this the result of the vaccines. I m starting to get concerned.
My name is Michael Morin, and I m 54 years old. At the age of 24, I was diagnosed with a heart condition. I was told I had heart disease that was similar to an 80 year old. I also had diabetes. I had just left the Marine Corps Reserve a year earlier. I joined the Marines at age of 17. I received a number of vaccinations in boot camp, one of which was the smallpox vaccine. When I left boot camp for R and R, I went home where joined in a game of pick up football. I began to have tightness in my chest and I was short of breath. I used to believe my problem developed from some sort of virus I got from the air-jet vaccination gun the service used, but now after speaking to one doctor by chance. Now I believe my problems were from the smallpox vaccination. I have been fighting an up hill battle with the Veterans Administration on compensation and treatment for the past 30 plus years, because of the lack of help from the medical field. I need to fine evidence and were to fined it. Who know more about what adverse effects smallpox vaccines cause and who can help me with my case. Thank you, Michael Morin
