World Rabies Day Observance Sept 28

World Rabies Day will be observed Sept. 28 to mobilize awareness and resources in support of human rabies prevention and animal rabies control.

Seventy-four countries participated in last year’s inaugural World Rabies Day, educating more than 54.3 million people, according to the Alliance for Rabies Control, a United Kingdom charity that helped spearhead the effort with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In recognition of World Rabies Day, a variety of events are scheduled, including vaccination clinics, lectures and educational seminars, festivals and dog walks.
