Raccoon Rabies Vaccination Baiting

Over the past 18 years there has been a significant reduction in human and pet exposures to rabies throughout Allegheny County. This is largely due to the efforts of the rabies vaccination program for wild raccoons spearheaded by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services (USDA), who the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) partners with for this massive effort. This year, employees and volunteers of ACHD and the USDA will be distributing vaccine-containing baits from August 5th through August 21st across Allegheny County.
