Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) -- Rabies Vaccine: What You Need to Know

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the rabies vaccine. It describes rabies symptoms, transmission, and effects. The document recommends preventative vaccination for those persons at high risk of exposure to rabies and offers a pre-exposure vaccination schedule. It recommends vaccination after exposure for those who have been bitten by an animal or may have been exposed to rabies. It advises what to tell your doctor, risks and side effects, and what to look for and what to do in the event of a severe allergic reaction. Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the rabies vaccine.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.
