I was bitten by a dog in Varna, Bulgaria this summer. The doctors in UK started 5-course rabies vaccine one week after I was bitten. Am I protected?

What the Expert Says:

Yes.  The vaccine is safe and effective assuming it was administered correctly.  I would suggest you check with your own physician who can be sure. There is no cure for the disease but if you received timely vaccine, you should be safe.
