Rabies Control


The goal of the Rabies Control Program is to minimize the spread of the rabies virus in the human population. The EH Section conducts investigations and provides technical assistance to private physicians, veterinarians, hospital emergency rooms, and local animal control shelters by following the Rabies Control Law, O.C.G.A. 31-19, and the Department of Human Resources Rules 290-5-2. The EH section coordinates specimen testing with the Georgia Public Health Laboratory.
