MASS RABIES VACCINATIONS IN APRIL
Vaccinated Dogs in Bali to Get Special Identifying Collars.
The Animal Health and Husbandry Service of Bali is preparing 200,000 dog collars to be places on free-roaming dogs receiving anti-rabies vaccination during a mass inoculation planned for April 2015.
Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, the head of the Service, Dr. Nata Kesuma, said, “We hope that is enough collars to go round allowing the program for the prevention of rabies to operate optimally.”
If, however, the number of dog collars is insufficient, a request has already been filed with the Central Government requesting additional supplies of collars for a total dog population estimated at 370,000.
Animal Health and Husbandry Unit is also preparing vaccines, syringes and other supplies need for the coming mass innoculation. 310,000 vials of anti-rabies vaccine is in hand, a shortfall of 60,000 vials.
To obtain the additional vaccine assistance has been asked from the Central Government.
