The Rabies Prevention and Control Project is launching a campaign to offer free rabies vaccinations for pets in the fiscal year 2023. The campaign aims to promote awareness and protect the health of both animals and humans.
The Importance of Rabies Vaccination
Rabies is a viral disease that affects the central nervous system of mammals, including humans. It is transmitted through the saliva of an infected animal, usually via bites. Vaccinating pets against rabies is an essential measure to prevent the spread of the disease and protect the health of not only the animals but also their owners and communities.

Preparing Your Pet for Vaccination
Before bringing your pet for vaccination, it’s essential to ensure that it is healthy. If your pet is experiencing any illness or showing unusual symptoms, consult your veterinarian first.
On the day of vaccination, make sure your pet is well-rested and comfortable. Bring necessary items such as a leash, collar, or carrier, depending on the size and species of your pet.
After your pet has been vaccinated, monitor it closely for any adverse reactions. While side effects are rare, some pets might experience mild reactions such as soreness or swelling at the vaccination site. If you notice any severe or unusual symptoms, consult your veterinarian immediately.
In conclusion, the Rabies Prevention and Control Project’s free vaccination campaign is an excellent opportunity for pet owners to safeguard the health of their beloved animals and contribute to the well-being of their communities. Don’t miss out on this chance to protect your pets and help prevent the spread of rabies.
