URGENT advice needed re: rabies inoculation in Russia.

Hi there, My girlfriend was bitten by a cat earlier today in Eastern Russia. Obviously this is a rabies risk area and so she needs to get a rabies inoculation. According to her, when she went to the hospital she was told that if she has the inoculation course she will essentially be incapacitated - unable to swim, go in the sun, or even walk vigorously. Was something lost in translation or is this complete nonsense? I can't find anything online to suggest that these kind of side effects exist for any rabies shots? Please help! Thanks.
