Training for dog vaccinators needed in Kalinga

by L. Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (29 November) -- Provincial Epidemics Surveillance Unit (PESU) Officer Jose Pardito Jr. called on local government units to hold more trainings for dog vaccinators in line with the massive vaccination of dogs in the province.

While we program for the massive conduct of dog vaccination in the municipal level, if we do not have enough vaccinators, we can hardly hit our target, Pardito said.

At present, only the municipalities of Tabuk and Rizal have trained dog vaccinators. Tinglayan hired a casual veterinarian for the program. All the rest are under the assistance of the Provincial Veterinary Office, he said.

Pardito said those trained in Tabuk and Rizal are based at the barangays and are doing it under a voluntary basis, except that they are given free dog immunization by the Provincial Health Office.

Following this scheme, other municipalities can easily have their own vaccinators in order for the program to roll off in the various municipalities, he said.

Making the fight against rabies a regular program among LGUs, Pardito recommended for the organization of Municipal Rabies Control Committees, which he said has been established in the municipalities of Tabuk and Rizal and are now functioning effectively in the control and prevention of rabies.

The Philippines being one of the rabies-endemic countries is intensifying its campaign against rabies and has set a target of becoming rabies-free by 2015. (PIA Kalinga) [top]
