How Does Rabies Affect Me?

Rabies is a serious human health concern because of the near 100% fatality rate once clinical signs develop. Agency personnel who routinely work with species of concern (canids, felids, mustelids) should have pre-exposure vaccination. Pre-exposure vaccination does not eliminate the need for additional medical attention if rabies exposure occurs, but it does reduce postexposure treatments. Pre-exposure vaccination may also provide some degree of protection when there is unapparent or unrecognized exposure or when postexposure treatment may be delayed.
