Florida Department of Health in Wakulla County
Padraic R. Juarez Administrator
Our Mission: To protect, promote & improve the health of all people in Florida
through integrated state, county, & community efforts.
Animal Bites / Rabies
It is the
responsibility of this office to maintain reports of all animal
bites within the county. Through a joint effort with Wakulla
County Animal Control, the health department is
immediately notified when someone in the county is bitten by an
animal, and we record the victim's name and where the event took
place. We then monitor certain repeat biters and offer
suggestions as to the disposition of the animals. When necessary,
this office will send samples to the lab for rabies testing. We
also maintain a connection to Animal Control when an animal has to
be quarantined, and its condition upon release.
