ac­tions to com­bat ra­bies in San Fer­nando.

“The chal­lenge is in the youth, es­pe­cially the SK of­fi­cials. They have the author­ity to em­power other youthto help in their re­spec­tive barangays,” said San­ti­ago.

He added that if the youth will be in­volved in this drive, the city will be able to achieve its goal of be­ing a “live­able city” safe from ra­bies.

City Vet­eri­nar­ian Dr. Ryan Paul Man­la­paz, dur­ing the fo­rum, shared to the par­tic­i­pants the dif­fer­ent ra­bies pre­ven­tion av­enues that the youth can par­tic­i­pate in.

CAVO’s pro­grams and projects in­clude free vac­ci­na­tions and spray­ing and neu­ter­ing to an­i­mals in all barangays; city-wide dog im­pound­ing; dis­tri­bu­tion of in­for­ma­tion, ed­u­ca­tion, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion (IEC) cam­paign in schools and malls; and uti­liza­tion of me­dia chan­nels such as tele­vi­sion, ra­dio, print, and so­cial me­dia for in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion.

City Agri­cul­tur­ist Cristina Sangu­may, on the other note, hoped for the par­tic­i­pants to re­ally ad­here to the city’s call on ra­bies pre­ven­tion since they get along with the an­i­mals most of the time.

Mean­while, Man­la­paz en­cour­aged Fer­nandi­nos to visit CAVO, lo­cated at Heroes Hall, for an­i­mal con­sul­ta­tion ser­vices.---CSF-CIO
