Re: Confrontation with opossum, need advice and guidance regarding rabies.

Or call your local health department. In some areas, they are the ones that keep track of any rabies possibilities. When I lived in a rural area that had a lot of rabid racoons, the health department was the only organization that even had the rabies vaccine. The local hospital didn't have it, though the health department could provide it to them if necessary.

It sure wouldn't hurt to ask! You ought to for your peace of mind, if nothing else!
