Indore (Madhya Pradesh): While an awareness campaign is being run over dog bites, Indore Municipal Corporation announced plans to start an anti-rabies vaccination campaign for all stray canines in the city from April 14.  “We wish to make the city free from rabies and for that we are going to give anti-rabies shot to stray dogs,” municipal commissioner Shivam Verma said.  

Meanwhile, the drive to make people aware of how to escape dog bites is going on in the city. 

On Tuesday, the drive was conducted in Buddha Nagar where residents were told how to avoid dog bites and what should they do immediately in case of bites. 

For the prevention and protection of dog bites, representatives of NGO Basics told the people that they should not allow their children to roam alone in gardens or other places where there is a danger from stray dogs. Along with this, the residents were told how death from a disease called rabies, which is caused by dog bite, can be prevented through vaccination. During this time, information regarding rabies vaccination was given by the NGO organisation in Buddha Nagar by going door-to-door and visiting public places.
