The Erie County Department of Health (ECDOH) has opened registration for two free rabies vaccine clinics on Saturday, May 11, at the Town of Tonawanda Highway Garage; and Saturday, May 18, at Buffalo Public School 84 near ECMC. Each event will run from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The sites will be set up as drive-thru clinics; pet owners will not need to leave their vehicles.

Registration is available at erie.gov/rabiesvaccine. Appointments are required. Up to three pets will be accepted per appointment. Individuals who are unable to access online registration may call 716-961-6800 during business hours to schedule an appointment.

Dogs, cats and ferrets 3 months of age and older are eligible for a vaccination. Pet owners are asked to bring proof of their pet’s vaccination with them to the event in order to receive a three-year vaccination certificate; otherwise, a one-year certificate will be given.

Dogs must be secured with a collar and leash or restrained in a carrier; cats and ferrets must be restrained in a secure carrier. Please do not use retractable or extended leashes.

ECDOH expresses sincere thanks to the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society, the SPCA Serving Erie County and the Erie County Medical Reserve Corps for providing volunteers and support in coordinating free rabies vaccination clinics for our community.

Additional clinics will be announced for fall 2024.
