Citing the rise in Covid cases, the Bermuda Veterinary Association has canceled the vaccination clinics for dogs against parvoviruses.
A spokesman said: “Unfortunately the BVA decided that we have to cancel the vaccination clinics. At least for now.
“Given the high Covid numbers and the increased risk, especially the mixing of groups, it seems particularly important to reduce our risk factors. Obviously the BVA wants to continue vaccination efforts and so far we have received a message from Endsmeet, Ettrick, Cedartree and Vetsmith that they will be honoring the $ 25 refresher price for the people who schedule this and show their vaccination cards.
“This would be done the same way, quick questions and a glance at each dog to make sure there were no obvious contradictions with the vaccine. If people want a full exam, book as one.
“The BVA does not want to risk a shortage of staff for the continued operation of every veterinary clinic, nor does it want to endanger the health and well-being of our generous volunteers. As a medical professional, it is important to be aware of the difficulties with KEMH and to do nothing to increase the number of cases you see.
“Please all stay healthy and we will keep you informed of future events if and when they become possible.”
