Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Q: Will I get rabies if I take the Rabivax vaccine?

A: No, you will not get rabies if you take the Rabivax vaccine. The vaccine does not contain a live virus and does not cause infection in the body. It only stimulates the production of antibodies, which then help protect from virus attacks in the future.

Q: What should I do if I don't feel well after receiving the Rabivax vaccine?

A: There are some side effects associated with the use of this vaccine. Hence, it is normal to not feel well after taking this vaccine. However, you must talk to your doctor if you observe any unusual symptoms or you continue to feel unwell for longer periods.

Q: Is it possible to contract rabies after being vaccinated against it?

A: Rabivax, like all vaccines, may not provide complete protection to everyone who gets it. You may require more doses if you come into contact with a potentially contaminated animal following vaccination. If this occurs, you should immediately consult your doctor. In some situations, the doctor may also elect to inject you with anti-rabies antibodies.

Q: Do I need the rabies vaccine if I get licked, scratched or bitten by an already vaccinated animal?

A: If the animal has been properly vaccinated, you may not need to take the vaccine. However, it is best to consult a doctor first. In some cases, an individual may need it (if unvaccinated previously) or might need booster doses (if vaccinated previously).
