Syringe Rabies virus vaccine

Hey guys,

I have done micro and was doing uworld questions based on micro. I used microcards (lippincotts) as a source for micro as it is clear and concise. In the microcards it stated that for rabies we should use a live vaccine for treatment but in uworld I had a question that stated it should be a killed vaccine.

Can you guys let me know which one to go with??

stick with what Uworld says; "No Live vaccine is currently recommended for use in the US by the CDC". Pick the killed vaccine. I know in other countries the live vaccine is used a lot though. I just looked through my micro cards (third edition) and i see where it says live vaccine. But stick with U world .
