Free to Schenectady County Residents
Schenectady County will hold a rabies vaccination clinic for cats, ferrets and dogs in Glenville on June 10. The clinic is free to Schenectady County residents. Cats and ferrets must be in carriers, and dogs must be leashed. Schenectady County vaccinated a total of 272 dogs and 165 cats at three clinics in 2022.
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.
“Summer is right around the corner and with that comes more potential for your pets to be exposed to bats and other wild animals,” said Schenectady County Legislator Michelle Ostrelich, Chair of the Health, Housing & Human Services Committee. “Now is the time to take advantage of our free drive-thru rabies clinic to make sure your pets are safe from this serious, fatal disease.”
Date: Saturday, June 10, 2023
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Location: Glenville Senior Center
