Rabies vaccine to be dropped from the air
Program length – 6:41
Baits will be dropped over portions of 27 counties
By KVUE News
The Texas Department of State Health Services will drop vaccines from the air Wednesday.
It’s part of the annual effort to protect people and livestock from rabies. They’ll drop about 1.8 million doses of the rabies vaccine over the next month.
The vaccines are enclosed in small packets dipped in fish oil and coated with fish meal crumbles.
The baits don’t pose a risk to humans, but organizers say you should avoid them because animals are less likely to eat the bait if a human has been messing with it.
