Compendium of Animal Rabies Control, 1989 Prepared by: The National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians, Inc.*

The purpose of these recommendations is to provide information on rabies vaccines to practicing veterinarians, public health officials, and others concerned with rabies control. This document serves as the basis for animal rabies vaccination programs throughout the United States. Its adoption should result in standardization of procedures among jurisdictions, which is necessary for an effective national rabies control program. These recommendations are reviewed and revised as necessary before each calendar year. All animal rabies vaccines licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and marketed in the United States are listed in Part II of the compendium, and Part III describes the principles of rabies control.
