Default VA- Health officials to distribute rabies vaccine baits

Health officials to distribute rabies vaccine baits
August 24, 2009 By John Valenti
For little more than a week in September, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services will distribute oral rabies vaccine baits via truck and helicopter in an effort to combat the spread of the deadly virus, officials said Monday.

excerpt from above:
Quote:
Between Sept. 9 and Sept. 18, officials will distribute about 116,000 baits via vehicle and another 75,000 by helicopter through western Suffolk, weather permitting.

The one-inch-square fish-meal baits and oil-coated plastic sachet baits are being distributed in a mass effort to contain the spread of rabies.

We need to keep up the pressure on requiring all pet owners to vaccinate their animals annually.
