Rabies and vaccination campaign in Switzerland

Rabies is a disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans and is caused by viruses from the genus Lyssavirus. Infection usually occurs by being bitten or scratched by foxes, dogs or bats. However, contact between their saliva and human mucous membranes is sufficient to cause infection.
