World Rabies Day 2010
World Rabies Day 2010, September 28, was created to raise awareness about the impact of human and animal rabies, how easy it is to prevent it, and how to eliminate the main global sources.
Last year in Georgia, 26 cases of rabies were identified in domestic animals (16 cats, 3 dogs, 4 cattle, and 3 horses/mules).
GVMA and the Georgia Division of Public Health have partnered to help reduce the risk of animal and human rabies in Georgia! In recognition of World Rabies Day 2010, consider one or both of the following activities:
1. Display or distribute a rabies brochure in your clinic to educate your clients about rabies.
Download an easily reproduced one page rabies flyer to provide to clients here.
A more comprehensive two-page flyer from the AVMA is also available.
2. Consider holding a low-cost or no-cost rabies vaccine clinic in your community in the near future.
A tool kit is available to guide you through creating your own vaccine clinic.
