LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)-Due to a rainy forecast, Lexington’s low-cost rabies vaccination clinic has been rescheduled to 6-9 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, at Douglass Park, 726 Georgetown Street.
Vaccinations will cost $3. Cats must be in carriers and dogs must be on leashes.
State law requires all dogs, cats, and ferrets be vaccinated. A rabid animal can pass the disease on to humans through saliva.
Usually, rabies vaccinations cost about $20.
“A rabies shot gives protection to the pet as well as its owner and the other people of Lexington,” said Luke Mathis, LFCHD Environmental Health team leader and one of the event’s organizers. “We’re pleased to provide this useful public health service as we help Lexington be well.”
The clinic’s date could change again based on the weather. The health department will provide updated information at www.lexingtonhealthdepartment.org and on its Twitter account at www.twitter.com/LFCHD.
