Sawant also said that the objective of the static point vaccination campaign is to vaccinate every dog in the state.
Goa CM Pramod Sawant has informed that some breeds of dogs that attack humans will be banned in the state. ‘People have dogs but they don’t vaccinate them at the right time’. 2 months ago in Taleigaon of North Goa, a case happened. The dog jumped from the gate and attacked the boy. The boy had to be kept for 4-5 days for treatment. After launching ‘Rabies Mukt Goa Static Point Vaccination Campaign’ in Goa, he has made this important announcement to ban certain breeds of dogs.
Incidents of some two-wheeler accidents have also come to light due to dogs. Therefore, there is a need to control the number of dogs. He expressed the expectation that people’s participation is now also necessary to make Goa rabies free. Will Mumbai be ‘Rabies-Free’? Contract signed for vaccination of stray dogs in the city; Plan to vaccinate lakhs of dogs every year.
“The static point vaccination drive aims to vaccinate every dog in the state in which people will have to cooperate with Mission Rabies concerned who will visit the houses,” he said. He urged people to vaccinate their dogs. “Be careful when bringing dogs from out-of-state with regular vaccinations,” he said.
“Although we have become the first rabies-free state in the country, our work is not done yet. We have to take the following steps to bring the population of dogs in Goa under control. There has been an increase in dog bite incidents and accidents,” he said.
