DOH-Duval Reminds Residents to Avoid Contact with Stray Animals and Wildlife

Full Story
The Florida Department of Health in Duval County (DOH-Duval) urges residents to avoid contact with wild and stray animals to protect themselves from the risk of rabies exposure. Heightened awareness is encouraged because of a confirmed case of a rabid bat exposure to a Duval County resident this month which required lifesaving post-exposure treatment/ vaccinations be performed.
