**Rhode Island – 3 Year "Transition Policy" announced by State Vet 2/21/10
New R.I. Rabies Regulations Close to Approval**, Providence Journal 2/21/10 http://www.projo.com/health/content/rabies_vaccinations_02-21-10_QVHH1UG_v13.36f414d.html
"New rules, expected to go into effect about March 16, change the mandatory vaccination period from two to three years.
In the meantime, the state veterinarian, Dr. Scott Marshall, has created a transitional policy so that pets now protected aren?t reimmunized unnecessarily just because the old regulations have not yet expired. "
If you have questions about the transition policy, contact Dr. Scott Marshall at firstname.lastname@example.org phone: (401) 222-2781 ext. 4503
