Per Kris Christine, The Rabies Challenge Fund, as posted to her Facebook page, public response has caused Assembly Member Cameron Smyth's office to withdraw the language in AB 2689 lowering the age of puppy vaccination from 4 months to 3 months. However, as the law currently stands, the State Public Health Officer can require annual rabies vaccinations in rabies areas. Please call (916) 319-2038, (916) 319-3958, or email committee members (contact information below) and ask them to strike the language in the current law (121690) authorizing the State Health Officer to impose annual rabies vaccinations.
Below is a copy of her e-mail to AM Cameron Smyth's assistant, Kevin O'Neill. To access the law in question, go to this link http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/
