Rules For Administering Rabies Vaccine?
today I schedule the 4th vaccine vaccine at a health facility … then our health staff does not need the fourth vaccine because there are no symptoms “… what do I do?
Hello Dex Yoha, thank you for asking.
Anti-rabies vaccine or VAR can be given as prevention or treatment. Prevention is generally done for people who have a high risk of contracting rabies. For example people who work in captivity animals, zoos, farms, and so on. Generally VAR is given 3 times.
Whereas administration of VAR for treatment after exposure to animal scratches or bites, depends on the history of whether a person has previously received VAR or not. In people who have never received VAR, the administration of VAR for treatment is generally done 4 times within a period of 21 or 28 days. In people who have received VAR, the vaccination should be done twice.
We do not know your history and your current condition, so we cannot determine whether you need to get another vaccine or not. You should ask this to the treating doctor, because the doctor who best understands your condition. If the doctor gives a suggestion, then it is best to follow the advice.
Thus short information from me, hopefully useful. Regards.
