The Humboldt-Del Norte Veterinary Medical Association is sponsoring low-cost canine rabies vaccination clinics through mid-July.
During the clinics, dog vaccinations are $10 each. Other canine and feline vaccinations will also be available. The cost of these vaccines will vary with each clinic. A complete clinic schedule follows below.
Dogs are required by state law to be vaccinated at 4 months, with a booster one year later and then every three years thereafter. Cats aren’t required by law to be vaccinated. However, it is highly recommended as they frequently interact with wildlife.
Questions about rabies can be directed to the Humboldt County Department of Health & Human Services Environmental Health Division at 707-445-6215 or toll free at 800-963-9241.
