1.Why do humans get rabies vaccine after exposure and infection? Why getting this vaccine isn't like getting the other vaccines like covid vaccine?(because we know that we get other vaccines before infection) 2. Why don't humans get rabies vaccine in multiple doses and routinely like animals?
Rabies vaccine can prevent rabies if given to a person after they have had an exposure. Rabies vaccine is an active immunizing agent used to prevent infection caused by the rabies virus. The vaccine works by causing your body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against the rabies virus.
Socioeconomic factors lead to lack of appropriate vaccination of rabies-exposed humans. Rabies vaccines are costly and have to be given several times, which becomes very burdensome for those living in remote areas. RIG is even more expensive and in short supply.
