(3/24/2013)

New cases of rabies in Bali continue to decline, but it is still too early to declare the island “rabies free.” The Island’s Livestock and Animal Health Department has introduced its 4th mass vaccination campaign that will take place between the months of April and June 2013.

As reported by Seputarbali.com, Putu Sumantra, head of the Provincial Livestock and Animal Health Department, said on Wednesday, March 20, 2013: “The fourth stage of mass vaccination will begin in April. This is part of our effort to reduce the number of rabies cases.”

He explained how the mass vaccination program was first commenced in 2010 and the program is now entering its fourth year. The fourth phase of vaccinations will cover all 9 Bali regencies and all metropolitan areas.

“In all of Bali we estimate there are 325,000 dogs that we will seek to vaccinate in the fourth phase of the program. Hopefully, all these dogs can be vaccinated. During the third phase of vaccinations we injected 315,000 dogs, said Sumantra.

Sumantra claims the ongoing program has recorded success by lowering the number of rabies cases. In 2012 there were 80 reported cases of rabies while through the third month of 2013 only 5 cases have been reported.

The 5 cases occurred in Bangli, Ginayar, Jembrana and Karangasem and were immediately treated by health officials.

The coming phase in vaccination, according to Sumantra, will take place on a door-to-door basis persuading people to allow the dogs living among them to be treated. We are asking people to tie their dogs up during the mass vaccination campaign to assist the process.
