Relevant Population Characteristics for Zoonotic Illnesses - Tularemia Cases

Relevant Population Characteristics

Tularemia is more common in males of all ages, though rates among male children under 10 years and males 75 years and older tend to be especially high. Rates in children may be associated with an increased opportunity for exposure to infected ticks and animals. Also, high rates among American Indians/Alaska Natives are thought to be associated with a higher risk for exposure.
