you get a rabies shot if you are bitten by dogs too. Plague there is a cure for and it's rare. Hanta virus and rat fever a pretty rare and curable. Esinophylic meningitis is mainly in Asia. Salmonella you can get from eating tomatoes, meat, eggs and so on. Leptospirosis is also found in cattle, pigs and horses and humans contact it by drinking contaminated water. And last but not least, Typhus is usually found in very unkept places such as refuge camps, prisons, ext. and we've had a vaccine for it for a VERY long time. Now, should I list the number of diseases you can get from contact from your fellow humans? I'm a chick and I set out live traps for mice at my parents house when I was 10 to relocate them to the woods and I wasn't scared of them....you're a wuss.
