It’s important you seek treatment as soon as possible if you haven’t already. If you started your course overseas, it is also important you keep to the schedule of treatment. The good news is that the WA Health Department currently provide rabies post exposure vaccines free in most instances, but you need to see a doctor in order for them to organise it for you.
Our staff are very experienced with rabies post exposure treatment. The clinic has rabies vaccines on hand at all time, and often rabies immunoglobulin too, but you do need to make an appointment. If you are already mid schedule, don’t leave it until the day you require the vaccine to give us a call.
Be aware that due to there being no rabies in Australia, emergency departments in WA usually don’t have rabies vaccines on hand. If you present to a hospital they will usually refer you on (often to us).
