Is the administration of Rabipur vaccine safe during pregnancy?
Q: My wife is bitten by a house mouse. She is 6 weeks pregnant. The doctor has administered Rabipur vaccine to her. Is it safe? Should I go for second dose?
A:It is safe. Because of the potential consequences of untreated rabies exposure and because rabies vaccination has not been associated with fetal abnormalities, pregnancy is not considered a contra-indication to post-exposure prophylaxis.
