Patient : Hello Dear Doctor Gomez:
Allow me to kindly ask you to share your extensive knowledge with me, please. I need to receive rabies pre-exposure booster (not post-exposure) of H.D.C.V. (Human Diploid Cell kind) by IM route. I have heard of some possibility of allergic reactions with boosters up to 6%. However, what is my biggest concern is possibility of anaphylaxis after rabies booster, and I am so afraid now. I have to mention that I have not been allergic to any rabies vaccination ever so far, or any other vaccination and to nothing at all during my whole life.
