Listen how oral rabies vaccines can play an important role in eliminating death in people from dog bite‪s

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

The United Against Rabies Forum calls for elimination of human deaths from dog-mediated rabies by 2030.
While tackling the problem at the animal source is considered the ultimate solution, the problems lie in the
details. Varying numbers of stray dogs that play a crucial role in transmission of rabies virus pose a real
challenge to the concept of parenteral mass vaccination of dogs. But there might be a solution. Dr. Ryan
Wallace, a CDC veterinary epidemiologist and rabies expert discussed the use of oral rabies vaccination
in stray dog populations in a podcast.
