If you get the PrEP shots, you DO NOT receive the immunoglobulin (which is multiple injections into and around the wound(s)).

Also, PrEP is now two shots, not three, at least in the USA.

Can I just confirm you mean “serious gloves” not medical nitrile gloves, correct?

Im thinking workgloves - cant see medical gloves doing much good preventing a bite
