Repeated doses of BayRab (rabies immune globulin (human) solvent/detergent treated) should not be administered once vaccine treatment has been initiated as this could prevent the full expression of active immunity expected from the rabies vaccine.
Other antibodies in the BayRab (rabies immune globulin (human) solvent/detergent treated) preparation may interfere with the response to live vaccines such as measles, mumps, polio or rubella.
