Rabies post exposure immune globulin hyperRAB (Grifols)

Posted , 2 users are following.


I had a non bite rabies exposure and the ID nurse practitioner who was administrating vaccine was not sure where to put all the shots of RIG 15 mm she said she could only put 2 mm in each injection but since there was no bite she was looking for help on where to inject she consulted with pharmacy and company that makes globulin and they decided two shots in muscle in right arm opposite of left arm that had rabies vaccine shot, and three shots in each thigh muscle about an inch apart of the rest of the RIG. So a total of one rabies shot in left arm and 8 rig shots spread between right arm and both thighs.

I got anxiety that they did not know what to do and was hoping they did it right anyone in health field have any experience with this?

    Usually with rabies there is a mark on the body of some kind. You left the doctor dumbfounded and unsure as to the problem. Its important to tell the doctor everything and to look for problems on the body so you can assure the doctors of the problem.
