The Niagara County Department of Health has canceled the June 6 rabies clinic, which was to take place in the City of Niagara, due to health concerns relating to the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The DOH said, “Please continue to follow state guidance recommending social distancing and avoiding large gatherings until further notice.
“While unfortunate that the clinic is canceled, the importance of keeping pets up to date on their rabies vaccine remains. Rabies is a preventable viral disease that causes death. If your pet is due for a rabies vaccination, be sure to contact your local veterinarian.”
