Patient :I was bitten by a cat few days ago. On the same day, I got a Tetanus shot and started my first of my five doses of RabiVax Injections. I got the subsequent doses of my RabiVax Injection on 3, 7, 14 and 22nd days after the bite. But, I think I was not given HRIG(Human Rabies Immuno Globulin). Again, I was bitten by an other cat on the day of my 5th dose of RabiVax Injection i.e. on the 22nd day after my first bite. Though , I tried to monitor both the cats for 10 days, the cat which bit me first is healthy but I am suspicious about the the second cat which bite me(It is very weak and passive). If the second cat is rabid, should I undergo any further treatment or injection for Rabies or for any other Infection? Since I was not given HRIG, Will my RabiVax Injection be effective?
