Anti-rabies vax administered in Kohima


A total of 124 were vaccinated with anti-rabies vaccines coinciding with the 76th Independence Day at Veterinary Hospital Kohima, here, on Monday.
A veterinary team from the hospital has been conducting free anti-rabies vaccination drives at various part of Kohima since the past few months.
On Monday, the veterinary team led by veterinary surgeon, Dr. Elizabeth Yhome organised a free vaccination drive at the hospital premises during which, people from all parts of the city brought their pets to be administered with the vaccination.
Vaccination cards were issued to dogs that were vaccinated while free treatment on other health issues was also carried out.
The team informed that such drives would be organised in parts of the city which were yet to be covered.
The drive has been organised to prevent rabies transmission among dogs and also from dog to human as people rear dogs and keep them in close proximity, which, if not vaccinated, may cause health issues.
Although there has been no record of a rabies outbreak in recent times, the quest to keep humans, pet dogs and cats safe and secure has been a continued effort.
