 台東縣狂犬病疫情持續升溫,日前疫苗只能撐到今天的新聞見報後引來民眾的恐慌,加上中央以貨源短缺為由確定無法繼續供應,而縣府自行購買的兩萬劑疫苗,八月十二日才會到,更加深民眾疑慮,特別是昨晚農委會證實台東咬人錢鼠為第一型狂犬病病毒,台東錢鼠案可能是「全球首例」。
     台東縣動物防疫所最後的150劑狂犬病疫苗今天早上09:30在關山鎮天后宮施打,因為台東疫情緊張,許多民眾一大早就在廟前等待,鎮公所人員因此分發號碼牌,但是因為大量的人潮加上數量眾多的狗狗,氣氛確時緊張不安。許多靠打山豬為生的獵狗也整車整車的出現在廟前廣場,九點半未到就擠爆廣場。一度車子還無法進入。
  在台灣因未有真正的狗狗狂犬病例,這股不安的恐懼氣氛救以如此嚴重,  如果不幸真有人或狗的案例出現,不知會是何等情況?這是防疫當局必須思考事先安排演練的項目,
  至於民眾恐慌性的心理也需要調整,因為雖然有鼬慌和錢鼠的實際案例,但人狗目前還算安全,所以請勿恐慌,以免打亂了原無章法的防疫當局的腳步。這是我們每一個人都要注意配合的事項。

  關山天后宮的疫苗接種,在不到一小時的時間內就被搶光一空,許多向隅的民眾只好等待下一回疫苗接種的通知。

The intensifying rabies epidemic in Taitung has forced the county government to purchase a further 20,000 vaccine doses; however, with the vaccine shipment not expected to arrive before August 12, many residents in the county are worried. The last 150 does of the rabies vaccine from Taitung County's Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine (台東縣動物防疫所) were administered at 9.30 a.m., on July 31 at the Tian Hou Temple (天后宮) in Guanshan.

In response to panic over the rabies epidemic, queues began forming outside the temple in the early hours, prompting the township office to adopt a ticketing system. It was not only domestic dogs, however, that packed the plaza in front of the temple, but also truck upon truck packed with hunting dogs, which the owners rely upon for their livelihood - hunting wild boar.

With such a huge volume of people and dogs crammed together, it was no surprise that the atmosphere was extremely tense. In less than an hour, the complete vaccination quota had been used up, leaving countless disgruntled residents with no choice but to wait until the next scheduled vaccination announcement.
