Rabies Vaccine Baits Successful

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Tennessee and Kentucky Departments of Public Health partnered to protect people and pets from any threats of rabies by dropping oral rabies vaccine baits (ORV).The oral rabies vaccine baits were dispersed from October 3rd-20th through parts of Eastern Kentucky after a raccoon in the Big Stone Gap area of Virginia tested positive for rabies a few years ago.Since then, they have not had any cases in those areas, which officials conclude to be a successful vaccination.
