Schenectady County Announces Drive Thru Rabies Vaccination Clinic for Pets

Schenectady County Rabies Vaccine Clinic for Pets

Free to Schenectady County Residents

Schenectady County will hold a rabies vaccination clinic for cats, ferrets and dogs in Glenville on September 24. The clinic is free to Schenectady County residents. 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.

“Our pets are such loved members of our families,” said Schenectady County Legislator Michelle Ostrelich, Chair of the Health, Housing & Human Services Committee. “These free clinics are an easy way to keep your pets up-to-date on their rabies vaccines, which help keep them healthy and safe.”
