Rabies vaccination and alcohol

Hi guys,
         I received my second vaccination of three for rabies as I am visiting thailand soon. The evening of the day when I recieved my second jab, I had a pint of beer with my meal. I am just wondering if this may affect my vaccine in any way such as make it ineffective.

Many thanks

Hi!
Luckily for you beer or alcohol doesn’t interact with antirabies vaccine. It will not affect the vaccine nor make it ineffective. But it is better to drink it in moderate amount so that if at all you contact rabies the symptoms should not get masked due to the effect of beer or alcohol. Complete your course of vaccination as advised. Hope you find this information useful. Do write to us again on how you are doing.
Best wishes!
