Oral vaccines could help curb rabies spread – study

An oral rabies vaccine could provide a more efficient and cost-effective method of rabies control in countries with large stray dog populations, according to new research.

Researchers hope the study will help support the introduction of the oral rabies vaccination in India as an additional tool to eradicate the disease.

The study was conducted by experts from Mission Rabies, the Worldwide Veterinary Service and the University of Edinburgh

According to the World Health Organization, rabies can be controlled only by systematic vaccination of humans and domestic animals like dogs, mainly injections, although oral vaccinations are currently being tested on dogs.
