- **Occupational Risk:** Veterinarians, animal handlers, and laboratory workers dealing with the rabies virus should consider vaccination.
- **Recreational Activities:** Individuals engaging in outdoor activities such as camping, caving, or hiking in areas with rabies-carrying animals should be vaccinated.
