Rabies Vaccination

Rabies is a viral disease transmitted to humans usually by a bite or scratch from an infected animal, usually a dog. The virus attacks the central nervous system causing, progressive damage to the brain and spinal cord. Once symptoms are present, rabies is almost always fatal.

Individuals considered at risk of exposure to rabies when travelling  should receive a course of vaccines.

About Rabies

Rabies is a viral disease transmitted to humans usually by a bite or scratch from an infected animal (usually a dog). The virus attacks the central nervous system causing, progressive damage to the brain and spinal cord. Once symptoms are present, rabies is almost always fatal.

Although rabies cases are rare in travellers, animal bites and scratches are common. It is important that travellers visiting areas where rabies occurs are aware of the risk and know what to do if they are bitten or scratched. The disease is preventable if the correct post-exposure treatment (PET) is provided quickly. PET can be expensive and difficult to obtain in some areas.

About the Rabies Vaccine

The rabies vaccine helps protect you against rabies. It’s recommended for people at higher risk of rabies from travel or through their work.

The rabies vaccine is given as an intra-muscular injection. You usually have 3 doses given over 28 days. If there’s not enough time to have 3 doses in 28 days, they can be given over 21 days or sometimes over 7 days.
