Patient : One of my relative died of Rabies on Nov-12-2011.Six months before she got a dog bite from a stray dog . She got vaccinated but had only 2 doses. She showed the symptoms of rabies last week and died within 4 days from the initial symptom. My concern is that she has handled our infant child(5 moths old boy) 20 days before her initial symptom and a couple of times earlier, after the dog bite. I'm scared about my baby's health now. Should i get him vaccinated with ARV?
