The government of the State of Mexico plans to apply a total of 3,340,700 vaccines for dogs and cats in municipalities this year to prevent the transmission of rabies in this state.

State Health Secretary César Gómez Monge said that as a result of programs such as the National Wean and Feline Vaccination Weeks, as well as free sterilization days, there have been no cases of rabies in 10 years in the state.

In order to vaccinate dogs and cats free of charge, a total of 5,385 brigades will be visiting neighborhoods with home visits. In addition, 1,802 posts will be installed in plazas, kiosks, schools and health centers of the ISEM.

Gómez Monge invited people to vaccinate their pets to continue control of rabies in the area, besides being responsible owners and avoiding abandonment of the animals.

“They are members of the family, taking care of their health is taking care of ours, for that reason promoting respect, care and responsible pet ownership, is everyone’s task,” he stressed.
