This Saturday (10/23), 39 vaccination points will be made available for dogs and cats against rabies, which will operate in five administrative regions of the Federal District: Gama, Fercal, Riacho Fundo I, Santa Maria and Sol Nascente/Pôr do Sol.

Healthy dogs and cats over 3 months of age can be vaccinated. If the animal receives the vaccine for the first time, it must be immunized again after 30 days.

As an infectious disease of viral origin that affects all species of mammals, including humans, rabies has high numbers of fatal victims, and vaccination is a great ally against deaths.

The rabies virus is found in the saliva of infected animals and is transmitted mainly through bites and, eventually, through scratches and licks of mucous membranes or injured skin.
