posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia.

The Genesee County Health Department will be hosting a FREE drive-thru anti-rabies immunization clinic on Thursday, August 12th from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Genesee County Fairgrounds (5056 East Main Street, Batavia). 

“Animal rabies continues to be a serious public health problem in Genesee County. We remind all residents to make sure that their animals are immunized against rabies and that their vaccinations are kept up to date,” stated Paul Pettit, Public Health Director for Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments (GO Health). “Please take advantage of this opportunity. Rabies is a preventable viral disease most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. Please leave wildlife alone and do not feed, touch, or adopt wild animals, stray dogs or cats.”

Vaccinations are free for dogs, cats and ferrets, but voluntary donations are accepted. Animals must be at least 3 months old. Each animal must be leashed or crated and accompanied by an adult who can control the animal. Limit 4 pets per car maximum. 

Face coverings are recommended and please follow all social distancing requirements.

The next anti-rabies immunization clinic in Genesee County will be held on September 16th.  For more information, please contact the Genesee County Health Department: 585-344-2580 x.5555 or [email protected].
