The Provincial Veterinary Office has called for vigilance against the deadly disease rabies, as cases rose to 13 this year, compared to 10 last year.

With cases of rabies increasing, Lemana also noted a reduction in rabies vaccination.

The PVO head attributed the decrease to the failure of some local government units to purchase their own anti-rabies vaccines.

While the provincial government bought its own supply of anti-rabies vaccines, Lemana said it is not enough for those who need it, stressing also the need for local government units to allocate funds for rabies vaccines.

The PVO will mark World Rabies Day on September 28 with free rabies vaccination at the Provincial Animal Learning Park and Hospital, Panaad Park and Stadium and at all district offices of the PVO.*
