DOH-ST. JOHNS COUNTY REMINDS RESIDENTS TO AVOID CONTACT WITH STRAY ANIMALS AND WILDLIFE

Full Story
In partnership with St. Johns County’s Division of Animal Control, the Florida Department of Health in St. Johns County (DOH-St. Johns) urges residents to avoid contact with wild and stray animals to protect themselves from the risk of rabies exposure. Heighten awareness is encouraged because of a confirmed case of a rabid bat exposure to a St. Johns County resident this month which required lifesaving post-exposure treatment/vaccinations be performed by DOH-St. Johns County’s staff.
