Rabies Pre & Post Exposure Treatment

Rabies is an acute viral disease of the nervous system that is usually fatal when undetected. It can be transmitted to humans through the saliva and spinal fluid of the infected animal. The nursing staff works closely with our Environmental Health Staff to investigate human rabies exposures. If a county resident is exposed (animal bite, scratch or indirect exposure) to a potentially rabid animal, they are referred for medical evaluation for post-exposure rabies treatment. The Health Department offers pre-exposure vaccination to those residents who are at increased risk of coming into contact with rabies, including animal control workers, hunters, veterinary, animal shelter employees and environmental health workers.
