If your child is exposed to a contagious disease other than rabies, call the office during regular office hours for advice. Rabies exposure, however, is an emergency and should be dealt with immediately. All other contagious disease exposure should be handled during regular office hours. Some exposures, such as meningococcal meningitis, whooping cough and influenza require certain medicines to prevent those diseases.
