Free to Schenectady County Residents
Schenectady County will hold a rabies vaccination clinic for cats, ferrets and dogs in Glenville in September. The clinic is free to Schenectady County residents – appointments and face coverings are required. Cats and ferrets must be in carriers, and dogs must be leashed.
Schenectady County Public Health Services (SCPHS) transitioned to electronic registration and a drive-thru clinic model to continue providing rabies vaccines to pets during the pandemic. Residents register online for an appointment time and provide information about their animals. This allows SCPHS to create a vaccination certificate for each scheduled pet. The new model has reduced stress on animals and wait times and allowed residents with more than one type of pet to receive vaccines during the same appointment.
“Rabies is most common among wild animals, but pets can get rabies if they are not protected,” said Schenectady County Legislator Holly Vellano. “Keeping your pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccine is one way to help keep them healthy and safe.”
Date: Saturday, September 18, 2021
