Hello doctor,

What are the initial and common symptoms of rabies? Is there any risk of overdose with rabies vaccines? I have taken 10 in four months.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all one rabies vaccine will give protection for around ten years, no need of revaccination if you get vaccinated once and later get bitten by a stray dog later in next ten years. For some unknown reason even if you are vaccinated more than once no problem since it is a protein subunit vaccine and side effects are limited. Initial symptoms of rabies are hydrophobia, disturbed sleep, agitation, and restlessness.
