Hi Mam. Anti rabies vaccine must be given to all if indicated whether pregnant or not . This is a must as there is NO cure for rabies once symptoms start . Rabies can only be prevented by giving anti rabies vaccine BEFORE any symptoms have started . NO harmful effects on babies have been recorded till now when given to pregnant or breast feeding women
Next Steps
Continue anti rabies vaccine
Health Tips
Just be relaxed . It is safe .
