World Rabies Day is celebrated every year on September 28. This day is first celebrated on the occasion of the death anniversary of rabies vaccine microbiologist and French chemist Louis Pasteur. On this day, various programs are conducted to raise public awareness about rabies and reduce their risk. Among these programs are public education and widespread vaccination.

Rabies is a fatal disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. The rabies virus is hidden in saliva and is usually transmitted to a healthy person by biting an infected animal or human.

Only mammals get rabies. Symptoms of rabies in dogs, cats, and minks may vary, mainly including fear, aggressiveness, drooling, difficulty swallowing, confusion and staggering, and convulsions.

Rabies vaccine and animal control programs can significantly reduce the number of people infected with this disease.
