Free Rabies Clinic Scheduled
Published Tuesday, March 12th, 2013 by Christine Schuyler in Chautauqua County Health Department

Mayville, NY - The Chautauqua County Department of Health, announces that a free rabies vaccination clinic will be held on Thursday, March 21, 2013 from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm at the Ag & Expo Building, Chautauqua County Fairgrounds, 1121 Central Ave., Dunkirk, NY. Please enter of the Waldorff Rd. entrance to the fairgrounds. Dr. Josef Powell is the attending veterinarian.

Vaccinations will be provided free of charge to all dogs, cats and domesticated ferrets three (3) months of age and older. Please know that all pets must be on a leash or in a cage; and you should bring rabies vaccination records for each animal that will be receiving a shot. It is helpful for the veterinarian to know the previous immunization status of each animal to ensure proper and effective vaccination.

New York State Public Health Law requires each dog, cat and domesticated ferret over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies. County residents are encouraged to be responsible pet owners by having pets vaccinated.

Rabies is a very serious disease of warm-blooded animals caused by a virus. Raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes are the common disease carriers. The virus is transmitted to humans and animals through saliva. It can enter the body from a bite, scratch, scrape or open cut. The rabies virus infects the central nervous system, causing brain swelling and ultimately death within days of the onset of symptoms.

For more information on the March 21st clinic and rabies in general, please see the Health Department's website at: www.myhealthycounty.com or contact the Health Department at 753-4481.
