Lagos govt to embark on free vaccination of 1.5 million dogs against rabies


The Lagos State Government says it will vaccinate no fewer than 1.5 million dogs within the next two weeks under its free anti-rabies vaccination campaign.

The vaccination will prevent the dogs from acquiring rabies disease from wildlife or infected animals/dogs, and thereby avert possible transmission to humans or other animals.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Agriculture, Ms. Abisola Olusanya, made the disclosure on Tuesday during the flag-off of the vaccination campaign held at the Palace of Oba Ayangburen, in the Ikorodu, Lagos State.

Olusanya said that in order for the vaccination campaign to be effective, it would be held year-in year-out for the next three years.
