32 dogs vaccinated
On the occasion of World Rabies Day, the Animal Husbandry department administered rabies vaccination to dogs here on Saturday.
Thirty-two dogs were vaccinated by a team of doctors, including clinician Santhosam Muthukumar, Vet Assistant Surgeons A. Joseph Raj and Abirami at the Thoothukudi Veterinary Polyclinic. Awareness on prevention of rabies was organised during the World Rabies Day event, which was themed ‘Vaccinate to Eliminate’.
Major health organisations have pledged to eliminate human deaths from dog-transmitted rabies by 2030, the doctors said.
