Shaping Smarter Regulations

29 CFR 1904 interpretations regarding antibiotics

Recommend that the interpretation regarding the administration of prophylactic antibiotics following tick bites be changed, so that it is consistent with the interpretation regarding tetanus vaccinations. Administration of prophylactic antibiotics following tick bites is currently interpreted to be medical treatment. This interpretation may discourage the administration of post-bite antibiotics and thereby possibly increase the risk of contracting Lyme's disease.
