HI
Well come to HCM
Rabies vaccine does not cause any numbness in facial areas, if the patient is having numbness then this could be due to something else but not the rabies vaccine, condition need to keep in observation, possibility of facial nerve irritation may be likely, this could happens prior to palsy, hope this information helps, take care, have a nice day.
