Dear Aleda, He told that, he has discussed from the doctor.
Please go to a doctor or hospital now if you are that worried. It is better to be safe than sorry.
Thanks doctor, I have reposted this question to the infectious disease community. Will a doctor Definately reply in this section as I noticed it's not an expert section? I am a little worried and would love to get some answers as quickly as possible.
Hi John, You should really post your question to a Medical Doctor versed in infectious diseases at medhelp. But, if you are really concerned it would be best to see a physician there in Vietnam who has familiarity in local diseases. Rabies is not spread by scratches usually.
The Human Rabies vaccine and immunoglobulin protocol requires several injections. It can be performed easily and fairly painlessly. Usually only hospitals carry the vaccine. I don't know about Vietnam, though.
Sorry I couldn't help more. Please post to the infectious disease forum.
