PVO launches anti – rabies vaccination

By Ronald Supnad

BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The Provincial Veterinarian Office (PVO) headed by Dr. Albert Venturina is conducting antirabies vaccination throughout the province.

This came after three persons died after being bitten by rabies-carrying dogs while 15 dogs are under observation after they were found to be carrying the dreaded rabies virus.

Dr. Venturina has appealed to the public to put their dogs in cages and have them vaccinated to prevent the spread of the dreaded virus. While those bitten by dogs should immediately seek medical assistance.

Asked if the province has enough vaccines since Bataan has 237 barangays, Venturina said that aside from the stock of the province, two multinational companies -The Integrated Poultry and Meat procesing plant under Engr. Richard Legaspi in Hermosa town and the Phil. Resins Industries Inc., led by its president Tetsuro Hachimura, had donated vaccines to the province.
“They (Legaspi and Hachimura) are very supportive of our campaign on anti-rabbies and helpful to the people of Bataan,” said Dr. Ventura.

According to Venturina, once a person is bitten by rabies-carrying dogs, said person will only live from 30 to 90 days if not given immediate proper medical attention.
