Have you found a bait?

Have you found a bait?

You may have seen a Rabigen SAG2 rabies bait on the ground, in the countryside of a vaccinated country (Finland, Estonia, Italy, or Greece).

These vaccinal baits are either dropped from planes, or put on the ground by designated people during national vaccination campaigns. They are meant to be eaten by wildlife (foxes, raccoon dogs); these animals are then vaccinated against rabies.
 
You should not touch these baits, as a general safety rule. But what if you have touched a bait?
 
In case of touching an intact bait:
This is not regarded as exposure to the vaccine, there is no danger (no post-exposure prophylaxis is required)
 
In case of touching a broken bait:
Flush thoroughly and wash the skin with soap and water, or substance with virucidal activity.
  • In case of contact with a broken bait on intact skin, no post-exposure prophylaxis is required.
  • In case of contact with a broken bait (especially if the blister is broken), on a skin having scratches or abrasions: Please contact your doctor. A specific treatment may be needed.
