Health Department Will Hold Rabies Clinic April 18 in Parish
The Oswego County Health Department will hold a rabies clinic Wednesday, April 189, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the County Department of Public Works Garage, Dill Pickle Alley, Parish.
All cats, dogs, and pet ferrets are required by state law to have a current rabies shot. Animals may receive their first rabies vaccine at age three months. The first shot protects the animal from rabies for one year. Subsequent shots last for three years. Pet owners should bring their pet's last rabies certificate to the clinic. The health department requests a $5 donation to help cover the cost of the clinics, but no one will be turned away.
To report a possible exposure to rabies, or for more information about rabies, call the County Health Department weekdays at 349-3564 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 3564. In an emergency during evenings, weekends, or holidays, call the health department's answering service at 341-0086.
