Hog vaccination against cholera in Capiz on

by Jemin B. Guillermo

ROXAS CITY, Capiz, Jan. 23 (PIA) -– The Office of the Provincial Veterinarian in Capiz will start conducting the massive hog cholera vaccination.

Dr. Leonil Abordo, in an interview over a local radio station here, disclosed that the vaccination of all hogs in the province will be effected starting next week after the vaccines purchased by the Capiz provincial government had already arrived.

Abordo said that the vaccination will be conducted in partnership with the agriculture offices of the different local government units in the province.

He stressed that vaccination against hog cholera is very important to prevent the occurrence as well as spread of said disease as the same is endemic in the province and the entire country.

Abordo explained that prevention of the hog cholera disease and other animal diseases is given attention by the provincial government as it annually sets aside funds for the purchase of vaccines as part of the province’s disease control program.

He cited that last year, there was an isolated case of hog cholera in President Roxas, barangay Villaflores in Maayon as well as in San Antonio, Cuartero which was given immediate response through massive hog vaccination.

“This year, we have not recorded any case yet of hog cholera nor outbreak of diseases of poultry,” Abordo said.

They are also on alert for bird flu, he said, adding that so far there is no bird flu case yet in Capiz.

Abordo likewise advised the public to properly consider environmental sanitation and regular vaccination in raising swine and poultry in order to prevent diseases in animals especially with the changing climatic condition. (JCM/JBG/PIA6-Capiz)
