| | Rabies shots...still given abdominally?
If someone has to have rabies shots after being bitten by an animal that potentially is a rabies carrier, do they still have to get them in the stomach? I 've heard that the new treatment is a reduced number down to 5 or 6 which as I understand are given in different locations (arms, hips, buttocks) rather than in the stomach. I was told by a friend that her younger sister who lives in South America recently was bitten by an animal, and had to receive the treatment, but she only received the 5 or 6 injections, but they were all administered in her stomach. Is this new regimen of shots still suited to be administerd abdominally? It used to be from 21 to 30 stomach injections, but finally was lowered to the 5 or 6 But, apparently these shots can be given in the stomach? Is that true? Anyone know?
