    Are people normally vaccinated against Hepatitis B, Rabies and Anthrax in the UK and how would I know if I was (can't remember)?

    No to all routinely

    edit: hepB and rabies vaccinations can be gotten from GPs/travel clinics/etc if required. Anthrax vaccine is rarely used outside of the military

    No. None of them in the UK.

    You may have Hep A if you were going to an at-risk country /medical profession - Anthrax and Radies, almost definately not (unless you are going to somewhere where biological weapons may be used - or you work with rabid animals a lot.....such as a bat keeper/worker)

    You'd be vaccinated against Hep A & B if you were working in a medical profession
