Hello about three days ago my girlfriend got a bat
Patient :Hello about three days ago my girlfriend got a bat in her house and she did not know if she got bit. The day after I was with her and I ended up kissing her very briefly at the end of the night. The next day she got the rabies shots. Everyone tells me I'm perfectly fine, but I want to know if I should be concerned or need the rabies shots?
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Firstly the chances of the bat having rabies is low, and also there is a big question mark on whether she was actually beaten by the bat.
So, I don't think there is any reason to worry.. Because if the bat did bite her she would have some kind of mark. So please don't worry.
Feel free to discuss further.
