Notice to Readers Clarification of Rabies Compendium

In MMWR 1982;31:693, the "Compendium of Animal Rabies Vaccines, 1983" made recommendations on rabies control in imported dogs and cats. These were recommendations of the National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians, Inc.; in regard to cats, however, they do not conform to the official recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the Public Health Service. Although domestic feline rabies has increased, there has been no evidence of increased risk of imported rabies in cats. United States Foreign Quarantine Regulations do not require rabies vaccinations for imported cats.
