Rabies Advisory Center

We were designated a rabies consultation center in 2005. Our doctors are available 365 days a year to answer questions about rabies:

  • professional information and advice for doctors and patients on the rabies situation in Austria and abroad as well as in case of need
  • Advice on indications for rabies vaccination after a bite wound by an animal suspected of being rabid and for long-distance travelers on the basis of WHO recommendations.
  • Preparation of an annual report

The titer determination of antibodies against rabies in humans is offered by the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene Vienna at a price of EUR 73,20.
