Abstract
Canine rabies vaccination is delivered in Thungsong District, Thailand, as an annual campaign
between March 1 and 31, and also at other times through private veterinary clinics, para-veterinarians
and health-care staff residing in the villages. The current questionnaire-interview survey was
conducted between June 23 and July 18, 2002 to determine: rabies-vaccination coverage amongst
the owned-dog population; basic dog-population information; and community awareness about
rabies. The modified expand programme on immunization cluster-survey method was used to collect
information about dog demography and management characteristics. Household knowledge about
rabies and sources of rabies information were assessed. Vaccinated dogs were identified from vaccine
certificates or owner reports confirmed by vaccinators
