Hi Manish,

The complete immunization schedule for a patient who has had a dog bite consists of 5 doses of Rabipur vaccine . The dosage schedule is one intramuscular injection of Rabipur on days 0, 3, 7 14 and 28. So if you have taken the first dose on 26 March, you need to take the second dose on day 3 (29 March), the third dose on day 7 (2 April) and so on.

The immunization should start as soon as possible after the dog bite and the immunization schedule needs to be strictly followed.

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help

Do I need to keep her from other children?
