Next Saturday (10/16), dog and cat educators have an urgent commitment: a rabies vaccination campaign. Kontagem municipality works through the Department of Health – SMS to promote vaccination in 81 health centers distributed over the eight health departments of the municipality, from 9 am to 5 pm. It is expected that 60,000 animals will be vaccinated.

The “The vaccine has no contraindications, but pregnant females, to avoid animal stress, will not be vaccinated,” said Samantha Liao, director of environmental monitoring and zoonosis control at SMS. The rabies vaccine is the main form of prevention that protects dogs and cats. Each animal is entitled to one free dose per year. Animals can be vaccinated from the age of three months.

Last week, SMS promoted the training of 29 moderators and 140 endemic control agents – ACEs who will act as givers on campaign day. Specialists were informed about the care to be taken when transferring immunity, including storage, homogenization, quantities to apply and place of application to the animal. They were also instructed on care to avoid accidents such as biting animals and how to handle pet teachers.

Let’s keep rabies eradicated in the Count

It is important to inform that Rabies is a disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans. This year, bats infected with the virus were found in the greater city of Belo Horizonte, but with no indication of an outbreak. The campaign aims to prevent and ensure that the disease continues to be eradicated in the city.

Transmission occurs mainly due to the bite of bats, which are eventually infected with the virus, in dogs and cats, and therefore are transmitted by biting.

Rabies affects the central nervous system and can lead to acute encephalitis. It can also kill, which occurs in almost 100% of cases, both in humans and animals.

Veterinarians stress that in addition to the vaccine, it is important to avoid contact with animals you do not know, to prevent bats from entering homes, and not to breed wild animals or remove them from their natural habitat, among other things. It is recommended to avoid contact with bats and wild animals in general.

The Directorate of Environmental Monitoring and Control of Zoonoses – DVACZ He informs that if a bat enters the house and is unable to leave, the person in charge of the house should contact the fire department to pick up the animal and send it to the Zoonoses Disease Control and Control Unit – UVZ for analysis. The trend also applies to bats found dead. If infected bats or dead bats are found, zoonoses teams available in the city’s eight health districts should be called.

“It is important to know that bats are important for the reproduction of many plants and trees, so you should not hunt or kill them. If an animal attacks you, clean the wound site with soap and running water, and seek medical attention immediately,” the supervisor advises. Health Surveillance in Contagem, José Renato de Rezende Costa. .
