Rabies Vaccine

 

The cost of the Vaccine is £80.00

The Vaccine is administered in 3 separate doses.

This Vaccine is recommended to be administered within a £85.00 GP Consultation with comprehensive advice. However, you may wish to have the vaccination only without a consultation which costs £25.00

MUMS GPs offer the Rabies Vaccine as well as Rabies Immunity Tests.

The rabies vaccine is used to prevent an infection prior to travelling to a high risk area. It is also used to prevent the illness from spreading to the nervous system after an animal bite. The pre-exposure rabies vaccine is administered with an intramuscular injection and consists of three doses.

You should have your first does at least 5 weeks before you travel to ensure you complete the course in time.

The 2nd dose is administered 7 days after your 1st does and the final 3rd dose is given 21 days after the second dose.

MUMS offer an accelerated course.

You will be protected for 10 years.

Rabies is a rare but very serious infection of the brain and nerves. It's usually caught from the bite or scratch of an infected animal, most often a dog.

Rabies is prevalent in Asia, Africa, Central and South America.

You should consider getting vaccinated against rabies if you're travelling to an area of the world where rabies is common and:

  • you plan to stay for a month or more, or there's unlikely to be quick access to appropriate medical care
  • you plan to do activities that could put you at increased risk of exposure to animals with rabies, such as running or cycling

Even if you have been vaccinated, you should still take precautions.
