Accreditation Seal

Rabies is an infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system. People get rabies from the bite of an infected, or rabid, animal. Wild mammals like raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyotes or bats as well as domestic animals like dogs, cats, horses and cattle can transmit rabies to people. Rabies is still very common in the wild in the United States.

Fortunately, rabies is 100% preventable with vaccination. Each year MCHD, in partnership with several local veterinarians, provides rabies vaccination clinics.

Rabies Clinics are over for the 2014 season. Clinics for summer 2015 will start next May. The schedule will be posted here in late April. You can also follow us on Facebook for updates to rabies clinics and other community events.
