Post exposure prophylaxis for different disease are given here ..referral from wikipedia:

also i found for tetanus prophylaxis is given in trauma, burns, rabies exposure

Rubella we give prophylaxis in all except pregnancy.

Varicella we give IG only on exposure in immunocompromised also since we cannot give live HIV if cd4 count >200...and in kid with immunocompromised condition we give acyclovir with IG.
