I won't get boosted unless I have another incident. I'll be more careful in the future.

The Titer test cost more than my booster so my doc just has me take it every 2 years. What say you guys?


Everything the left touches it destroys

Your doctor is not making that decision on science or need, merely convenience.

I know folks who have maintained acceptable titer for 30 years with no booster. If they followed your doctors logic, they would have had 15 unnecessary boosters...........

That's what I did. Deep Scratch from a dead frozen coon. Real deep. Basically long story short. ... better to be safe than die of rabies. So they sent me in to the ER for shots.

I've been trying to cut the feet off critters before freezing them.

Maybe wearing thick gloves is a solution, I don't know

There was one guy on here that cut their nails with a clipper. Don't remember who, but either that, or thick gloves.
