Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: One animal toxicity study on reproduction and development, led with another inactivated rabies vaccine, produced in VERO cells, did not evidence any deleterious effects on female fertility and on pre- and post-natal development.
Clinical use of rabies vaccines (inactivated "WISTAR Rabies PM/WI38 1503-3M strain") during a limited number of pregnancies did not show any malformative or foetotoxic effects to date. Given the seriousness of the disease, vaccination should be performed during pregnancy, in compliance with the usual vaccination schedule, in case of high risk of contamination.
Breast-feeding: This vaccine can be used during breast-feeding.
If the patient is pregnant or breast-feeding, thinks she may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask the doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
