Rabies vaccination

Rabies vaccination

What is rabies?

Rabies is a severe viral infection of the central nervous system that is almost invariably fatal. You can become infected through the saliva of infected animals (especially dogs, foxes, bats, cats), when viruses get into the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth by licking injured skin, bites or scratches, or when saliva of the animal gets into the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or mouth through unwashed hands. The infection leads to seizures, aggressive behaviour, coma and death by respiratory paralysis. The disease often begins months, sometimes even years after contact with the virus.

Who should be vaccinated?

If you are planning a trip to countries with a high risk of rabies (especially Asia and Africa), especially in the case of long-term stays (more than 4 weeks), insufficient local medical care, a lack of modern vaccines and immunoglobulin, simple travel or living conditions or activities with an increased risk of exposure (e.g. bicycle or motorcycle tours), foreseeable contact with mammals, including bats, a prophylactic vaccination is recommended.

Especially infants and children should be vaccinated generously, as they often seek contact with animals and at the same time may (be able to) report risky contacts but not always.

How and when is the vaccination carried out and what must be observed?

The rabies vaccine is an inactivated vaccine and is given into the muscle. For adults and children, the preventive vaccination consists of three injections into the muscle of the upper arm on days 0, 7 and 21 (or 28). There is also a rapid vaccination schedule, should you be planning a trip soon. For long-term protection, a booster vaccination should be given after one year, and thereafter depending on the risk of exposure.

Important: After contact with an animal suspected of being rabid, everyone must be vaccinated. If you have already received several vaccinations, the risk is lower and you will have to receive fewer booster shots.

What should I do?

To find out which vaccinations are appropriate for your planned trip, simply make an appointment for a travel medicine consultation at one of our Avi Medical practices and talk to our medical team. They'll tell you what to look out for to ensure you're safe and relaxed on your next trip.
