Correction: Rabies vaccination waivers

The article “AVMA updates model practice act” in the March 1, 2012, issue of JAVMA News inaccurately quoted part of the new AVMA policy “Annual Rabies Vaccination Waiver.” The policy actually states: “AVMA recognizes some animals might require a waiver from rabies vaccination because the vaccination poses an unacceptably high risk to the health of the individual animal, or a waiver might be necessary for research purposes.”

The article inadvertently quoted from a draft that was subsequently amended by the House of Delegates prior to approval of the policy.
