the anti-rabies vaccine (dog injection) is still protective in case of your father medical condition. Kindly get him his vaccines on time. Also keep a gap of 14 days between covid vaccine and anti-rabies vaccine. Give priority to anti-rabies vaccine over covid vaccine. And if covid vaccine has already been given, take the anti-rabies vaccine as soon as possible.
