The first date in a series of six free rabies vaccination clinics in Erie County next year has been announced.

The clinic will be on Wednesday, January 27, 2016  from 3-7p.m. at the North Buffalo Community Center located at 203 Sanders Road. 

“Our free rabies clinics are a great way for Erie County to help protect families and their pets from rabies,” said County Executive Mark Poloncarz. “In 2015, 4,716 dogs, cats and ferrets were vaccinated countywide through these clinics. I strongly encourage pet owners around the county to take advantage of this valuable and mandated public health initiative.”  

“These vaccinations are a good way to minimize any problems that may arise from contact between wildlife, pets and possibly their human owners,” added Health Commissioner Gale Burstein. “I want to remind Erie County residents that if they or their pets have been exposed to a wild animal, or bitten by a dog or cat, they should contact the Erie County Department of Health at 716-961-6800.”
