Anybody think i need rabies vaccine for touring Canada, Chile and Argentina for 6 months with tent?
Does it exist any medical drugs to delay the infection if you are bitten by a rabies infected animal?
My fear if i am in rural areas and there is a long way to get to the doctor. Because they say you have only 24hour to find a qualified doctor if you are bitten.
There are an estimated 55,000 human deaths annually from rabies worldwide, with about 31,000 in Asia, and 24,000 in Africa. (Wikipedia)
That means the chances is zero to get rabies as long you are not touring Asia and Africa?
The vaccine is expensive, the program is 3 vaccines over a certain period.
