About 1, 200 cattle targeted for vaccination against the East Coast Fever in Vubwi district.

About 1, 200 cattle are targeted for vaccination against the East Coast Fever in Vubwi district this month.
Vubwi District Veterinary Officer, Richard Masiye Banda, says that the exercise, which kicked off yesterday will go on until 27.
Dr. Banda says that his department is facing a serious transport challenge.
He says that this is preventing the department from effectively carrying out vaccination exercises in Vubwi.
This has even forced the department to request for transport from the Forestry Department, but also called on the permanent secretary’s office to come to its aid.
Meanwhile, Dr. Banda says that the district is expected to receive about 21, 000 Kwacha for the New Castle vaccination exercise which is expected to be carried out from August 28 to September 20.
He says that new castle vaccine for the exercise is expected to arrive in the district by Friday.
Dr. Banda also says that about 500 dogs are targeted for vaccination in phase three.
