2021 Steps in Anti Rabies Vaccination & Follow Up. (2021, Apr). Talisay City District Hospital Outpatient Dept.

  1. Go as early as 6:00 am to get listed. Consultation will start at 7:00 am
  2. Is this your first time to visit Talisay District Hospital?
    1. If you’re a first timer, the staff will issue a hospital ID card. Don’t lose this card
    2. If you already have a hospital record, submit your hospital ID card, so that nurse on duty can retrieve your record
  3. Is this your first visit (first shot) after the bite?
    1. There will be a separate queuing line for you, so tell the security staff right away
    2. During consultation, tell the nurse that this is your first visit. You will be queued for the doctor’s appointment who will interview you what happened
    3. Secure the charge slip from the triage nurse, and pay it at the cashier
    4. Wait for your name to be called for the doctor’s consultation. The doctor will decide what vaccines to give. For Category III wounds, you’ll likely need ERIG, anti rabies vaccine and anti tetanus shots
    5. You’ll also be instructed when to come back usually 3 to 4 times more
  4.  
  5. Is this your second, third or fourth shot?
    1. There will be a separate queuing line for you, so tell the security staff right away
    2. Secure the charge slip, and pay it at the cashier
    3. Wait for your name to be called to get the vaccine jab
    4. You’ll also be instructed when to come back, if you’re not done yet

The anti-rabies shot is free of charge, but you need to pay a small amount usually less than ₱ 200 for every visit for the consumables (syringe, etc.). If you need an anti tetanus shot, you can buy this outside the hospital for ₱ 100.00. I’m not certain if ERIG is free, so verify this on your visit.

Note: This guide was written during the COVID-19 pandemic. You will need the mask and face shield to enter the hospital premises and these should be worn at all times for your safety. The steps mentioned, fees and other details may change, so please verify this as well.
