Virginia Approves Rabies Medical Exemption
The State of Virginia legislature has voted unanimously to include in its rabies law an exemption from rabies vaccination for family pets whose health is endangered by it. A round of applause goes to Virginia Delegate Ken Plum of House District 36 for introducing the legislation.
While the legislation does not state so specifically, Virginia pet owners are advised to have a letter from a licensed veterinarian attesting to the underlying medical condition that precludes rabies vaccination or re-vaccination.
