World Rabies Day

Chanjo the dog says be a Rabies Hero

World Rabies Day 2020

Rabies Free Africa is launching the Rabies Hero campaign for World Rabies Day 2020. We are encouraging veterinary professionals to host vaccination clinics to prevent outbreaks of diseases like parvovirus, distemper, and most importantly rabies. Beyond preventing outbreaks, hosting clinics will give your hospital the chance to increase business and help people in your community who may be struggling with financial hardship. We want to help people keep their pets and not relinquish them to shelters as we know this is good for the animals, owners and community.

Below are resources for hosting a vaccination clinic in a safe way. The suggestions are centered on ways to focus promotion and provide care to clients in safe, socially distant ways. Veterinary hospitals should adhere to all state and local guidelines for social distancing, wearing masks and other recommendations to limit the transmission of COVID-19.

Veterinary hospitals should host the vaccination clinic that works best to help clients, fit company culture, and meet community needs while adhering to state and local guidelines to prevent COVID-19 transmission.
