Hi Sanur Medical Clinic visitors,
Now we will share about rabies. Rabies is a deadly virus spread to people from the saliva of infected animals. The rabies virus is usually transmitted through a bite.
In Indonesia especially in Bali, stray dogs, cats and monkeys are the most likely to spread rabies to people.
Once a person begins showing signs and symptoms of rabies, the disease nearly always causes death. The first symptoms of rabies may be very similar to those of the flu and may last for days, including fever, muscle weakness and tingling
For this reason, anyone who may have a risk of contracting rabies should receive rabies vaccinations for protection. If you are around Sanur, you can get the vaccination at Sanur Medical Clinic. Anyone who has been bitten by an animal, or who otherwise may have been exposed to rabies, should clean the wound and see a doctor immediately. You also can consultation with a professional doctor at Sanur Medical Clinic. The doctor will determine if they need to be vaccinated.
A person who is exposed and has never been vaccinated against rabies should get 4 doses of rabies vaccine – one dose right away, and additional doses on the 3rd, 7th, and 14th days.
Sanur Medical Clinic can provide the vaccination to your hotel/villa (doctor on-call) 24 hours. For more info contact us by phone: +62361- 289116 or reach us by WA
