Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Is it necessary for me to get the Rabipur rabies vaccine even if I haven't been bitten by an animal?

A: Rabies, as a viral disease, can be fatal if left untreated. However, it is 100% preventable through vaccination. Hence, if there is a risk of frequent contact with animals, the Rabipur rabies vaccine can help protect from rabies infection. It should be taken as a preventive measure.

Q: How many doses of the vaccine do I have to take?

A: The number of doses depends on whether you are taking the vaccine before or after exposure to the rabies virus. If you are taking the vaccine for the first time, it can vary between 3 doses to be taken over a span of 21-28 days (before exposure to virus) or 4-5 doses over a span of 28 days (after exposure). If you have been vaccinated and are exposed to the virus later, you may need 2 more doses. The frequency of dosing will be decided by your doctor based on timing of vaccination and risk of exposure.

Q: Will I be protected if I have already taken the vaccine and am licked, scratched or bitten by an animal later?

A: Rabipur, like all vaccinations, may not fully protect everyone who receives it. If you come in contact with a potentially infected animal after vaccination, you may need additional doses. You should immediately consult your doctor if this happens. In some cases, the doctor may also decide to give you an injection of antibodies against rabies.

Q: How long will the Rabipur vaccine protect me?

A: Clinical studies have shown that an adequate immune response after taking Rabipur vaccine can last for up to a couple of years. Booster doses may be required after this period depending on the level of antibodies in the blood at that time. You can consult your doctor on the booster dose regimen.
