|Other Considerations||Tetanus prophylaxis and/or antibiotics||
Infiltrate as much of the KEDRAB dose as possible into and around any detectable bite wounds if infiltration at the bite site is feasible. Administer any remaining KEDRAB intramuscularly into anatomical site(s) distant from the site of the rabies vaccine.
- When the bite site is unknown or indeterminate (undetectable) or if infiltration is difficult at the bite site (e.g., lips, fingers, knee), administer the full KEDRAB dose by the intramuscular route at a site distant from the site of rabies vaccination.
- If a large intramuscular volume is required (>2 mL for children or >5 mL for adults), administer the total volume in divided doses at different sites.
- Do not mix KEDRAB with the rabies vaccine or administer in the same syringe with the rabies vaccine.
- Discard unused portion of the product in the vial.
Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to administration. Do not use if either of these conditions exists, and contact Kedrion Biopharma Inc. at 1-855-353-7466. Do not discard the vial.
