Rabies vaccine is offered as pre-exposure prophylaxis in Fortaleza

Animal professionals, who work in Fortaleza and have direct contact with domestic or wild animals in the practice of their profession, can perform rabies vaccine as such pre-exposure prophylaxis. The service is available Monday through Friday at the capital’s 35 health centers offering bioimmunology, from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. On weekends, two units also implement the application, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Prophylaxis protects against exposure that is unclear, i.e. when there are no symptoms, and generates a level of immunization that simplifies possible post-exposure treatment,” explains Vanessa Soldatelli, immunization coordinator at the Municipal Health Department (SMS).

According to the municipality of Fortaleza, PEP should be applied to veterinarians, biologists, virology laboratories, rabies anatomy, students of veterinary medicine, animal technology, biology, agronomy, agronomy, and related fields, as well as professionals working in the field of capturing, immunizing, identifying and classifying mammals with potential to carry the virus.

In order to be entitled to receive the vaccine, it is necessary to provide, in addition to Official document with photo and proof of residency, some proof of activity in the above mentioned areas.


Rabies is a serious contagious viral disease that can be transmitted to humans through bites, scratches, and saliva from infected animals that come into contact with infected skin or mucous membranes.

The disease affects the central nervous system and can lead to the death of both humans and animals.

The human rabies vaccine is used to prevent rabies in children and adults, and is usually given after potential exposure to the virus, which is transmitted by the bite of a dog or other animals infected with the rabies virus.
