In rare cases, some people also experience: a mild high temperature (fever) a headache muscle aches vomiting a rash The vaccines used in the UK contain dead (inactive) rabies virus, so you can't catch rabies by being vaccinated

Tikki The kwami ;3 : Omg I'm drooling! Oh no.. Wait.. Never mind I always drool lol
