States consider controlling rabies vaccination intervals - VIN

The momentum is building.

"Spurred by consumer concerns about over-vaccination of pets, authorities in Delaware and Minnesota separately are considering rules governing the frequency with which companion animals are immunized against rabies.

In Delaware, state Sen. Karen Peterson has introduced legislation that would subject veterinarians to disciplinary action if they vaccinate animals more often than is recommended by vaccine manufacturers.

In Minnesota, advocates for rules on rabies vaccination intervals are scheduled to address the state Veterinary Medical Board at its next meeting on Sept. 27."
