About the vaccine When to get vaccinated: You should aim to get your first dose ideally five weeks before travelling to ensure you will be able to complete the course in time. Course: The course consists of three vaccines. The second dose is given seven days after the first dose. The third dose should be given three weeks after the second dose. Accelerated course: If you’re travelling at short notice, you may be able to have the third dose two weeks after the second. Boosters: The rabies vaccine protects you for 3 years. If you are working with animals or are otherwise at a higher risk, more frequent boosters may be recommended. How it is given: Injection in the upper arm. Side effects: The vaccine can cause mild side effects such as rash, a high temperature, nausea or muscle aches. Children: The rabies vaccine can be given from birth. Additional precautions: Avoid touching animals while abroad. If you are bitten or scratched by any animal, wash the wound and seek medical attention immediately. Risk if you contract the disease: Rabies is usually fatal. There is no cure for rabies.
