I am not quite sure on whether is this the right forum to ask this, but any replies will be truly appreciated.
I live in South East Asia and a couple of days ago, a bat frequented my house. It look sick as it try to fly but plopped on the floor frequently, and as I have no knowledge on rabies for bats, I actually chase it out with a stick :)
As I suspect that it may have been in my house prior to our encounter, I did some googling on bat disease and rabies caught my eye. So I took my wife and kids to go for the three doses of preventive vaccination within 72 hours of when I chase out the bat. We are currently waiting for our 2nd dose.
But now I read that bat bites may sometimes be painless and leave no mark? Though I do not see any visible bite scar on my family, I am worried as I am not sure on whether will the preventive vaccination be enough if a bite occurred without us knowing?
