Students start rabies shots

October 08, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

About 90 elementary school students in Stevensville have started a series of rabies shots after a parent let them touch a dead bat that was later confirmed to be rabid.

The mother of two students gave presentations last week in five classrooms and allowed the children to touch the dead bat. She offered each student who touched it a sanitary wipe.

The students will receive six shots of anti-rabies vaccine, paid for by the school and its liability insurer. The cost could exceed $150,000.
