The health personnel, appropriately identified, will apply the doses of vaccines against rabies at about 780 thousand dogs of the Lima (Lima Metropolitan Area and Lima Region) and 113 thousand in Huánuco with the aim of preventing it from getting this disease and transferring it to people and other animals susceptible to infection.
VACCINE ONCE YEAR
3,387 vaccination posts will be installed in Lima and 1,020 posts in Huánuco that will be located in health facilities, as well as major public welfare points.
The coordinator of the national zoonoses strategy of the Ministry of Health, José Luis Bustamante, called citizens who have a dog at home to vaccinate against rabies once a year from 3 months of age. "If you have a sick dog, it is better not to vaccinate him until he is fully recovered," he noted.
The Van Can 2018 is held from 8 o'clock in the morning to 4 o'clock & # 39; in the afternoon and will also include voluntary veterinarians, health professionals, veterinary students and other trained professionals for immunization against rabies from dogs.
