Rabies in northern Greece

No cases of rabies in animals have been detected since 2014 and Greece is therefore now considered to be no risk for rabies.

Following extensive vaccination and surveillance campaigns, authorities in Greece have reported that no animals with rabies have been detected since May 2014. The rabies situation is considered resolved, although intensive surveillance and monitoring remains in place.

The current Public Health England (PHE) rabies risk assessment for the whole of Greece is therefore no risk.
