Rabies risks and causes

Side Effects

Adverse reactions to the rabies vaccine and HRIG aren’t common, but they can happen.

 Minor reactions at the injection site can include:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling 
  • Itching

In rare cases, patients may experience symptoms like headache, nausea, abdominal pain, muscle aches, and dizziness.

Before receiving the rabies vaccine, let your healthcare provider know if you’ve ever had a serious allergic reaction to a dose of the rabies vaccine. You should also tell your healthcare provider if you have any severe allergies, or if you have a weakened immune system due to a chronic condition or use of certain medication (such as steroids).
