Presently, Singapore is free from rabies. There have been no rabies in people and animals including bats. Therefore, local dogs are not permitted rabies vaccine. Rabies vaccine is available in Singapore and is permitted for dogs that are exported and therefore  need to be vaccinated against rabies as required by the country of export.
