The Caloocan City Veterinary Department (CVD) has rolled out an extensive anti-rabies vaccination campaign, ensuring that pet owners have convenient access to the necessary preventive measures for their furry friends. Starting from Monday, August 7, until Saturday, August 12, 2023, the vaccination clinics will be held at specified venues and timings to accommodate as many pet owners as possible.

However, the CVD would like to remind everyone of some crucial guidelines to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the vaccination drive:

  1. Young pets aged below three (3) months should not be vaccinated, as their immune systems are still developing and may not respond adequately to the vaccine.

  2. Animals that have been bitten or attacked by suspected rabid animals within the past two weeks should not receive the vaccine during this time. In such cases, immediate veterinary attention is advised.

  3. Pregnant or nursing pets should not be vaccinated during this period, as the vaccine may have adverse effects on the developing offspring.

  4. If your pet is currently undergoing treatment for an illness or is on medication, it is best to delay vaccination until their health has stabilized.

Pet owners are encouraged to bring their pets' vaccination cards, if available, to help the veterinary team keep accurate records and ensure proper follow-up care.


The anti-rabies vaccination drive is an essential public health initiative aimed at preventing the spread of rabies, a deadly zoonotic disease that can be transmitted from animals to humans. Vaccinating pets is not only a legal requirement but also a responsible and caring act towards safeguarding the health and well-being of the entire community.

The CVD, together with the city government, is committed to creating a safe and rabies-free environment for all residents. The anti-rabies vaccination campaign is just one of the many efforts they are undertaking to promote responsible pet ownership and create a healthier and more harmonious coexistence between humans and animals.

Let us all join hands in ensuring the well-being of our beloved pets and contribute to building a city that cares for its residents, whether two-legged or four-legged. Mark your calendars for the scheduled vaccination dates and venues, and together, we can make Caloocan City a shining example of responsible pet ownership and compassionate animal care.
