MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – The Animal Bite Treatment Center here will now be able to cater to all patients who are in need of intervention if they are bitten by animals that are believed to be rabid following the issuance of an accreditation by Department of Health (DOH) and PhilHealth.

“Ang accreditation sa Animal Bite Treatment Center daku og tabang sa katawhan tungod kay dili na limitado ang serbisyo og syento porsyento nga libre ang bakuna kontra rabies,” reads and advisory posted by the city’s Public Information Office (PIO).

(The accreditation of the Animal Bite Treatment Center is a huge help for the public because now services won’t be limited and the vaccine against rabies will now be 100 percent free.)
