Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. For monkey bite you had 2 injections of Verorab, and 3,and 4th injections are rabipur. Both the injections are qualitatively, and quantitatively equal, and both are from standerd companies,so you need not worry about it , 5th injection you can take which ever you get at that time among these two.
Among the monkeys the spread of the rabies is very rare unless this monkey is bitten by an infected dog, or bitten by another monkey bitten by infected dog.
Any how you got vaccinated and going to complete vaccination of 5th one on 8th of october. dont worry you can take any brand for the 5th dose. I hope you are satisfied with my reply. thanks for calling.
