Oral vaccination of foxes associated with their control has been shown to be a rapid and safe method to extinguish enzootic foci of sylvatic rabies and to prevent the entry and spreading of this zoonosis in free zones of Italy. Domestic animals vaccination with live modified vaccines in zones with sylvatic rabies has proved to be highly effective in limiting the cases, recorded only in non-vaccinated animals.
