How Can I Prevent Brucellosis?
Brucellosis may be prevented with the following steps:
- Do not drink or eat unpasteurized dairy products.
- Wear rubber gloves if you work in the animal processing industry.
If you have come in contact with an animal infected with Brucella, tell your health care provider -- even if you do not have symptoms. You will need to be monitored for at least six months. There is no effective human vaccine to prevent brucellosis.
