Rabies Vaccine

The rabies vaccine protects against the rabies virus, which is often transmitted through animal bites. Typically, the vaccine is given as a post-exposure prophylaxis after an animal bite. The first dose of the vaccine should be given as soon as possible after exposure. Additional doses are required 3, 7, and 14 days after the first vaccination. Pre-exposure vaccination should be offered to individuals who are high-risk, such as veterinarians, animal handlers, and some laboratory workers.
