Number of persons who refused, received, or avoided postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) in children's camp bat incidents, New York State, 1998–2002. Treatment status was unknown (not reported to New York State Department of Health) for 117 persons: 9 persons in 1998, 19 persons in 1999, 22 persons in 2000, 33 persons in 2001, and 34 persons in 2002.
