No, properly given injection with disposable syringe and needle will be safe. It will not cause any infection calling for use of a local antibiotic (mupirocin. This is used to treat bacterial skin infections.

HiI Sir My pedritician has vaccinated my son at 6 weeks today. He gave pentavaccine and PVC vaccine but not given IPV. He gave only OPV. Is it necessary to take IPV also. Can IPV injected after 2 day of vaccination.

Check again if it was hexa instead of penta. If penta then yes you can, but I am afraid, IPV is not available as a single solitary vaccine for quite some time. Next time at 10 and 14 th weeks, discuss with your pediatrician about combo vaccine penta plus IPV. Two doses of IPV may be good enough if IPV is not available separately.

Your little one's immunization is pending for opv (oral polio vaccine) booster 2, typhoid dose 2, dtap (diptheria, tetanus and pertussis) booster 2, varicella dose 2.

Hello, Doctor I received the complete vaccination 2 months back on day 0,3,7,14 and 28 after a bite by an already vaccinated dog and the dog is completely healthy after a month. But recently when I was feeding a stray (not vaccinated) dog I touched the bowl he was eating from and he also licked me. I would like to know whether I am safe from rabies and for how long I am immune after receiving all the Post exposure vaccinations. Thank you.

1. If the lick was over intact skin, it's never an issue. Also touching the bowl is not a problem. 2. The duration of effectiveness of the vaccine is variable but averages from 2-10 years. So in case of repeat bite or exposure we recommend 2 doses on day 0 and day 3 as booster.
