Conducted by Erie County Department of Health, Clinics Address Serious Public Health Concern

ERIE COUNTY, NY-The Erie County Department of Health (“ECDOH”), Erie County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz  and Commissioner of Health Dr. Gale Burstein are pleased to announce that a free rabies vaccination clinic will be held in the month of January.  The clinic, conducted by the Erie County Department of Health in association with the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and the SPCA serving Erie County, provide free rabies vaccinations for dogs, cats, and ferrets.

“We must protect families and their pets from rabies, and these free clinics are a great way to do that,” said Poloncarz. “I encourage pet owners around the County to take advantage of this program by bringing their pet to the clinic, either on a leash or in a carrier, and if possible to bring along the animal’s vaccination record as well.”

“These vaccinations are a good, no-cost way to minimize any problems that may arise from  contact between wildlife, humans, and their pets” added Burstein.   Any exposure to a wild animal, or bites from a dog or cat should be reported immediately to the Health Department at 858-7690.
