Active Immunization (Postexposure).
A 1.0-mL dose of any of the 3 vaccines is given intramuscularly in the deltoid area or anterolateral aspect of the thigh on the first day of post-exposure prophylaxis, and repeated doses are given on days 3, 7, 14, and 28 after the first dose.
An immunization series should be initiated and completed with 1 vaccine product.
Serologic testing to document seroconversion after administration is advised occasionally only for recipients who may be immunocompromised.
