2018 Low-Cost Rabies Clinic Information

The cost of the three-year license and three-year vaccine is $26.00. The owner must provide proof of previous vaccination, such as their previous rabies vaccine certificate. MACC hosts a low-cost vaccination clinic from 8:00 a.m. until Noon on the third Saturday of each month from February-November. The monthly clinics are held at MACC’s shelter, located at 5125 Harding Place, in Nashville.
