  • Vaccination:
    • Rabies: Immunization Series/Booster within 2 years or Positive titre (Proper rabies titre- neutralizing antibodies of at least 0.5 IU/ml.) (WHO)
      • It takes 21 days for the full pre-exposure rabies vaccination and up to a month to check titre levels. Only one or two booster shots may be needed if someone has been vaccinated before, but you will have to be tested again after each shot to see if titres are high enough. It takes about 10 days for antibodies to build up. So, if you are testing titre levels, start about three months ahead of time.

    • Tetanus: Immunization within 10 years. Sometimes a booster is recommended at five years. Any doctor office or walk in clinic will typically have a tetanus vaccine.
