Wellness Center
In May the CDC and ACIP released official updated guidance on Rabies Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). Changes include:

  • Redefined risk categories (most veterinary personnel are Category 3)
  • New minimum antibody titer (0.5 IU/mL replaces “complete neutralization of rabies virus at 1:5 serum dilution”)
  • Type of titer tests (any titer test is ok)
    • The RFFIT (Rapid Fluorescent Foci Inhibition Test) is no longer the only accepted test. Medical professionals can order the much less expensive ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) test, which is offered by many commercial laboratories.
    • No routine antibody titer checks required for most veterinary personnel

Going forward for veterinary personnel who have already received a three vaccine rabies pre-exposure series or who have ever received the full post-exposure series, there is nothing more you need to do! This is true no matter how long it has been since you were last vaccinated for rabies. 

Therefore, the MVMA will no longer be hosting the Wellness Center at the Annual Meeting.
