Rabipur Injection Details

RABIPUR is a vaccine used to help prevent rabies infection in people who either

• Have been, or are at risk of being bitten, licked or scratched by an animal infected with rabies virus. Rabies is a very serious infection. The rabies virus attacks the nerves and the brain. Rabies infection can be fatal if not treated as early as possible.
How Rabipur Vac works
RABIPUR works by causing your body to protect itself against rabies.

The body makes substances that fight the rabies virus. They are called antibodies and circulate in the blood. If the rabies virus gets into someone who has been vaccinated against rabies, the antibodies kill the virus before it can cause damage. After vaccination your body takes several weeks to develop enough antibodies to successfully fight rabies. For vaccination against rabies you need a course of 3 to 5 injections. After this course, most people produce enough antibodies against rabies. However, as with all vaccines, 100% protection cannot be guaranteed Further booster injections of rabies vaccine may be needed every few years to ensure enough antibodies are present. he vaccine will not give you or your child rabies. The chance of a severe reaction from RABIPUR is very small, but the risks from not being vaccinated against rabies may be very serious.
