A 3-year-old child is receiving vaccinations after rabies was confirmed in a bat she came in contact with in San Miguel County, the state Health Department said.
“Rabies is fatal in humans. If you have been exposed to a rabid animal, rabies can be prevented with a series of vaccinations,” Health Secretary Retta Ward said in a news release issued this week. “We want to remind everyone to avoid any animal that is on the ground. It could have rabies and pass it on to you.”
