Rabies is a much bigger problem in other parts of the world than it is in North America. It's worse in developing countries where humans most often get it through dog bites.1 Areas where rabies is most common include Africa, Asia, India, Indonesia, and Central and South America. Travelers who will be spending time in rural parts of these areas are encouraged to get vaccinated against rabies.
