    Great posts in this thread.

    Just wanted to add that when you are bitten the toxin spreads through the tissues it was deposited in. Highly toxic venom can kill very fast because only a tiny amount needs to make it to the bloodstream. Less toxic but still lethal venom spreads out through the tissues causing severe local damage as small amounts are leaked into the blood vessels.The toxin acts more slowly in these cases but does eventually build up in the bloodstream.

    In fiction a vampire usually bites directly into a blood vessel. This is different of course, from how other kinds of toxins enter a person's body.

    You get to write it however it works for the story.
