By now, most Americans have heard about the pandemic.
But for many, the news that their dogs are going to get a shot at a vaccine is even more concerning.
The National Vaccine Information Center, or NVIC, said in a blog post Wednesday that it would start vaccinating dogs on October 15 in the United States.
This is not the first time that a vaccine has been released to dogs, though, and it won’t be the last either.
In 2014, a vaccine was released for humans and cats in the U.K. and France.
The first human vaccination for dogs in the US was in 2009.
In addition, dogs have received a few other vaccines, including in 2003, when the CDC approved a canine vaccine.
The vaccination program for dogs, however, was designed to be given as part of a broader vaccination campaign for humans, with the goal of reaching everyone.
In the United Kingdom, dogs were vaccinated for polio in 2000 and a vaccine for the virus was released in 2014.
