rabies vaccine

HI Doc!
In the past, as far as I know, the govt of SA had a good immunisation program. I''m 33 &  I remember getting various immunisations throughout school. I wondered if any were for rabies? I''ve recently started helping out at an animal welfare organisation &  need ot know if I should have a booster shot or what?

If you are working at an animal welfare organisation, you should have a rabies vaccination.

Jenni, none of the shots we had at school were for rabies I''m afraid. You should have one done though just in case - the full course will work as a prophylactic.
