DCAO and DPO flagging off the vaccination campaign at the District headquarters.

The Production Department launched an animal vaccination campaign at the District headquarters. 

 The Department received a consignment of a fridge,freezer, stabilizer and vaccines (40,000 doses) FMD and (10,000 doses) ISD from the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries(MAAIF) .

The District is still under quarantine so the vaccines will help to protect the animal population against diseases. 

The vaccines will be regulated by the Subcounty technical officers and supervisors for easy obtaining of the returns.

The District Veterinary Officer instructed the team to effectively utilize the vaccines such that the quarantine is uplifted regardless of the resource constraints.

Uganda is preparing a bi - annual vaccination campaign so as to have a disease free country.

The DCAO appealed to the team to work with commitment and offer best services to farmers to be able to appreciate the outcome.
