Rabies Vaccine Aplenty

(10/27/2012)

The provincial government of Bali is estimating that 325,000 vials of rabies vaccine will be on hand at the end of 2012 to enable phase IV in mass vaccination programs of dogs in Bali set to get underway early in 2013.

The head of the Livestock and Animal Health Department for Bali, Putu Sumantra, said on Thursday, October 25, 2012, predicts that only 50,000 vials will be used through the end of 2012 from the current stock of 375,000 vials.

Quoted by Seputarbali.com, Sumantra said, ‘Using vaccine available from last year and the support from the FAO (United Nations), some 280,000 dogs have been inoculated, leaving sufficient remaining stocks of vaccine (for the program to continue).”

Experts estimate that the total dog population of Bali stands at 320,000 animals. “Most of the 50,000 dosages of vaccine used in 2012 were for the inoculation of new born dogs and for ownerless street dogs. Hopefully, by November 2012 we will be able to complete the 2012 vaccine program,” said Sumantra.

Based on projections, the remaining 325,000 dosages should be sufficient to meet Bali’s needs through all of 2013 and into the beginning of 2014. This Sumantra sees as very good news and forms an essential part in Bali’s plans to once again become rabies free.

Sumantra used the occasion to remind residents of Bali to take good care of their animal, sterilizing their pets to control the dog population and surrendering dogs they can’t care for to new owners or the government.

Sumatra said Bali is overpopulated with dogs at 320,000 animals. He feels a more sustainable population would be 200,000 animals.
