How often do you get rabies vaccine?

The first vaccine against rabies is usually put between 4-6 months since before it could not be effective because the puppy until the year still presents antibodies from the mother, a booster rabies vaccine is repeated every year and from there the rabies vaccine will be applied annually, although this period may vary depending on the country, for example, in the US it's every 3 years. The rabies vaccine must be applied by a veterinarian.
