Abhayrab is a rabies vaccine used for the prevention of rabies infection. Rabies is a viral infection that affects the central nervous system and is transmitted through the bite or scratch of an infected animal, typically a dog. Without prompt treatment, rabies is almost always fatal.


Abhayrab contains inactivated rabies virus, which stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies against the rabies virus. By administering the vaccine before or after exposure to the rabies virus, it helps protect individuals from developing rabies infection or reduces the severity of the disease if exposure occurs.


The vaccine is typically administered through injections into the muscle, usually in the upper arm for adults and in the thigh for children. The dosage and schedule of vaccination may vary depending on factors such as the individual's age, vaccination history, and risk of exposure to rabies.


Abhayrab is commonly used for post-exposure prophylaxis in individuals who have been bitten or scratched by an animal suspected of having rabies. It may also be used for pre-exposure prophylaxis in individuals at high risk of rabies exposure, such as veterinarians, laboratory workers, and travelers to areas where rabies is prevalent.


Common side effects of Abhayrab may include pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, as well as fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle aches. Serious side effects are rare but may include allergic reactions.


It's important to receive prompt medical attention and vaccination after a potential rabies exposure, as early treatment can prevent the onset of rabies infection. Additionally, individuals at risk of rabies exposure should consider pre-exposure vaccination to reduce the risk of infection. Always consult with a healthcare professional for guidance on rabies vaccination and treatment.
