September 28 is World Rabies Day, a global health observance started in 2007 to raise awareness about rabies and bring together partners to enhance prevention and control efforts worldwide. World Rabies Day is observed in many countries, including the United States.

It is celebrated annually to raise awareness about rabies prevention and to highlight progress in defeating this horrifying disease. 28 September also marks the anniversary of Louis Pasteur’s death, the French chemist and microbiologist, who developed the first rabies vaccine.

World Rabies Day is the first and only global day of action and awareness for rabies prevention. It is an opportunity to unite as a community and for individuals, NGOs and governments to connect and share their work.

September 28th 2019 will be the 13th World Rabies Day, and the theme for World Rabies Day 2019 is “Rabies: Vaccinate to Eliminate‘“– you can help by keeping pets up to date on their rabies vaccination, and learning more about when to talk to a healthcare provider about postexposure prophylaxis (PEP), which includes vaccination.
