Johannesburg and Gauteng health departments are vaccinating dogs and cats against rabies after several cases confirmed in southern and western Johannesburg in October 2010.

Rabies is an infectious and potentially fatal disease to humans and animals. Vaccinations are free of charge. It is compulsory to have pets vaccinated if they are three months or older, and not vaccinated in the last month.

Dog bite victims of the last four weeks are urged to report to a health officer or state veterinarian.
