What should I avoid after receiving the rabies vaccine?

Your doctor may recommend that you avoid taking immunosuppressive drugs, such as anti-malarials, aminoquinolines or corticosteroids, both before and after getting vaccinated. These medications can interact with the vaccine and make it more likely for you to be infected with rabies. Since the rabies vaccine can cause dizziness, avoid doing activities such as driving or operating machines until you feel better. Talk to your doctor about the possible risks to a nursing infant if you are breastfeeding after being vaccinated.
