Antivenins

OK. So I have a character who was treated for coral snake venom about 5 days before the scene I'm writing takes place. 

1) If he's injected with the stuff/bitten by a snake again, will the antivenin still protect him?

2) Does the antivenin protect him against any other poisons? It's my understanding that there's no such thing as a universal "anti-poison" vaccine, but would the same antivenin used to treat coral snake venom also work for other venoms/toxins in a related grouping?

Thanks!
