Who should not use Imovax Rabies?

People who have a serious infection, cold or flu should not use pre-exposure Imovax until they are feeling better. There are no known reasons for absolutely avoiding post-exposure treatment with Imovax. Anyone who is allergic to any ingredient in Imovax Rabies may develop mild to severe allergic reaction symptoms. Additional doses of Imovax Rabies may be difficult to tolerate, but anti-inflammatory or fever-reducing medications may help. Your doctor will monitor you carefully when you are using Imovax Rabies if you have a bleeding disorder, cancer or an autoimmune disease.
