Passive post-exposure prophylaxis
Human RIG should be used concomitantly with the first dose of vaccine.
Dose of RIG is 20 IU/kg of body weight.
As much of the dose as possible should be used to infiltrate the wound(s). Dilute if needed for large wounds.
The remainder is given intramuscularly using a separate syringe and needle.
Vaccine should be administered in a different site.
Purified equine RIG or antisera containing rabies antibodies is available outside the United States
