Rabies update

US CDC and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, with assistance from Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services and Suburban Hospital-Johns Hopkins Medicine, have developed an online course to educate healthcare providers and public health professionals about rabies, the approach used in evaluating patients for rabies virus exposure, and the administration of rabies postexposure prophylaxis (PEP). There is no cost to view the course or to receive continuing education credit.

As a reminder to clinicians, PEP for rabies is reportable in Maine.

The second quarter animal rabies update for Maine is now available at http://www.maine.gov/tools/whatsnew/attach.php?id=277584&an=1
