rabies

my boyfriend was bitten my a monkey (in Bali, Indonesia) resulted in small bite mark and bleed. He did wash w soap and put in iodine. Followed by shots of verorab vaccine 3 scheduled time, the day after the incident, then 7 days after, then 21 days after.
My question is, I kiss him and have sexual relation during all this time, should I also have been vaccinated? Thank you...

Hi, welcome to the forum, rabies is seen due to bites by infected animal such as dogs, bats or cats. Even monkeys can transmit the rabies. First of all your friend suffered a bite mark and bleeding which is itself has potential of high transmission rates, if the animal is rabid.

Another thing you had sexual relationship. The chances of you getting rabies are quiet less as monkey should carry rabies. Secondly, your boyfriend is vaccinated within time. Even human to human transmission is not well documented. Do not worry; I would advise you to consult your healthcare provider for further line of management and take the prophylaxis (vaccination) if advised. Take care and regards.
