Disease-prevention office head Anya Jantragard said the campaign began in February at the Public Health Center and with mobile units dispatched to the Pattaya’s 42 neighborhoods. The final push began June 3.

Work to curtail rabies goes on all year, but extra effort is put in before the summer rainy season. The city hopes to inoculate at least 40 percent of Pattaya’s dogs and cats.
