2016 Low-Cost Rabies Clinic Information

The Metro Public Health Department is making a change to the annual rabies vaccination clinics. Metro Public Health Department will host a low-cost rabies vaccination clinic once a month at Metro Animal Care and Control from February-November in 2016.

The monthly rabies clinics will replace the annual rabies clinics previously held each March at area Metro Schools and Metro Parks.

The change to monthly vaccination clinics will allow community members more flexibility to obtain low-cost rabies vaccinations throughout the year.

MACC is pleased to announce additional local veterinarians will be hosting low-cost rabies clinics. Cost: $10.
