Delaying rabies vaccination when dogs and cats bite can lead to death
Today’s new generation rabies vaccines are produced from vero cells with a closed process that reduces the risk of contamination.
At the purity step, the rabies vaccine uses fractional centrifugation, ensuring low levels of impurities and complying with WHO quality standards (lower than 10 nanograms per dose).
Some vaccines do not use thimerosal (mercury) preservatives, so the new generation rabies vaccine also reduces local side effects such as swelling, pain, fever…
“In 1992, many countries stopped using older generation rabies vaccines and switched to using new generation rabies vaccines.
The new generation rabies vaccine is more effective, does not contain neurons, so it does not affect the health and mental health of users”, experts affirmed.
