If you get scratched, or bitten, just go straight to the ER. I went to an urgent care, they were clueless. Next day I went to my regular Dr. and he sent me straight to the ER. He said do NOT FUUUCK around with Rabies. Just get the 2 month interval treatment, which I did. The question is I did that last year, so how do I keep up the Titers?? No one really knows, so I'll have to ask a vet.


Just a weekend trapper...

I had the pre-exposure rabies shots about 15 years ago (due to working in close proximity of thousands of bats every year in my exclusion projects). I get my titer level checked every 2 years. You can add it to regular blood tests for cholesterol, sugars, whatever (normal wellness checks). I have never needed a booster. It is still a bit disturbing that so many have no idea the PRE-exposure shots are NOT a life-long vaccine. If contact is made with any question of rabies involvement, you still need to get the follow-up shots. The pre-exposure shots simply get you a head-start on the process. For that reason, many people choose not to get them, since a rabies exposure mandates a trip for the shots anyway. But those at high risk for exposure are wise to get the pre-exposure shots.
