In The Dresden Files RPG, Red Court Vampires(RCV)/Infected have the supernatural power Addictive Saliva (YW162). The power itself does not say anything about it conferring immunity to the saliva of other RCV, and the books don't address that either.

Is there any rule/reference that I might be missing that would say for sure if they are or are not immune to the effects of the saliva of other RCV?

If you took the magical route for the saliva, I would say that it offers a small degree of immunity based on the power differential between the Red Court vampires.

If you took a medical route, I would say that the saliva is akin to a venom therefore they are immune. Otherwise, they would not be able to function because they would be constantly under the effect of their own venom.

I do not think that the books describe at any point any red courts fighting each other so it's up to you.
