Vaccination Against Rabies in Kiptagich

The Directorate of Livestock and Veterinary Services, in collaboration with the Africa Network for Animal Welfare (ANAW), is currently conducting a vital vaccination exercise in Kiptagich Ward, Kuresoi South Sub-county. The focus of this initiative is to provide free vaccinations against foot and mouth disease (FMD) for cattle and rabies for dogs, cats, and donkeys.

Led by Chief Officer Dr Michael Cheruiyot, the veterinary team aims to vaccinate over 6,000 cattle against foot and mouth disease and approximately 1,500 dogs, cats, and donkeys against rabies within the Kiptagich ward. Following this phase, the vaccination program will extend to other wards in the sub-county, with a target of vaccinating more than 42,000 cattle and 6,000 dogs, donkeys, and cats.

The broader objective of this vaccination program is to enhance livestock productivity by preventing the spread of foot and mouth disease, ultimately contributing to the economic well-being of farmers in the county. Additionally, the initiative seeks to curb the prevalence of rabies, promoting public health and the welfare of domestic animals.
