CONTRAINDICATIONS

In view of the almost invariably fatal outcome of rabies, there is no contraindication to post-exposure immunization.

However, if an alternative product (e.g. HDCV or Rabies Vaccine Adsorbed [RVA]) is not available, care should be taken if the vaccine is to be administered to persons known to be sensitive to processed bovine gelatin, chicken protein, neomycin, chlortetracycline and amphotericin B in trace amounts, which may be present in the vaccine and may cause an allergic reaction in such individuals.
