RABIES VACCINATION CLINIC TO BE HELD AT FLOYD COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT

Written by Matt Davis on September 13, 2017. Posted in News/Weather

Floyd County Environmental Health will team with PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Services) and local veterinarians to conduct a rabies vaccination clinic for cats and dogs on Saturday, September 16th from 1 pm until 4 pm in the parking lot of the Floyd County Health Department, 16 East 12th Street in Rome.  Cost for the vaccination is $10.

Animals must be healthy, at least twelve weeks of age and on a leash or in a pet carrier.  The rabies shots will be administered by veterinarians from East Rome Animal Clinic, West Rome Animal Clinic and Mount Berry Animal Hospital with the assistance of PAWS staff.

Shane Hendrix, Floyd County Health Department Environmental Health Manager, says that there have been six confirmed cases of animal rabies in Floyd County this year.  He indicates that vaccination events such as the one scheduled for Saturday are intended to prevent the fatal illness.

Hendrix adds that rabies cannot be treated, it can only be prevented.  Rabies vaccination is not only an important preventative measure, it’s state law.

For more information about this Saturday’s rabies vaccination clinic, call the Floyd County Environmental Health Office at (706) 295-6316.
