234 Consider possibility of allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to bovine gelatin.When postexposure prophylaxis against rabies is indicated in an immunocompromised individual, serologic testing is considered essential after completion of the postexposure prophylaxis regimen to confirm that an adequate antibody response was obtained.234 General Precautions Local or Systemic Adverse Effects Once initiated, postexposure prophylaxis for rabies should not be interrupted or discontinued because of local or mild systemic adverse reactions to rabies vaccine.249 Serologic confirmation of rabies immunity idee cadeau enfant 18 mois following preexposure vaccination (3-dose primary series) is not necessary in most individuals because of the high rate of response in immunocompetent adults, adolescents, and children when the recommended vaccine regimen is used.208 (See Concomitant Illness under Cautions.) pcecv (RabAvert) for preexposure vaccination: History of anaphylactic reactions to the vaccine or any component.208 234 However, acip, CDC, AAP, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (acog and the manufacturers state that pregnancy is not considered a contraindication for postexposure prophylaxis with rabies vaccine because of the potential risks of inadequately treated rabies exposure and because there.208 234 (See Cautions.)

234 Serious anaphylactic reactions during rabies vaccination pose a serious therapeutic dilemma.
212 236 Also consider preexposure vaccination for individuals whose activities bring them into frequent contact with rabies virus or potentially rabid bats, raccoons, skunks, cats, dogs, or other species at risk for having rabies.
208 234 Importance of informing clinicians if a patient has a fever or serious illness.
212 Because appropriate preparations of RIG or rabies vaccine may be not available for postexposure prophylaxis in the destination country, CDC recommends that travelers to such countries have a preplanned strategy in place that may involve identifying a different country where appropriate postexposure prophylaxis can.
