Davidson County Rabies Vaccination Clinic Days

Davidson County Rabies Vaccination Clinics Announced
Clinics at 27 Area Schools the Last Three Saturdays in March

Metro Animal Care and Control Offers Shots Tuesdays through Saturdays in March

The Metro Public Health Department and the Nashville Academy of Veterinary Medicine will hold their annual rabies vaccination clinics at 27 area schools the last three Saturdays of March from 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. (Please see attached list of schools.) Rabies vaccinations and Avid Microchip implants will be offered at Metro’s Animal Care and Control Facility, 5125 Harding Place, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m., throughout March.

"Offering the low-cost vaccinations during the week at Metro Animal Care Control, and Saturdays at the facility and at area schools will hopefully allow more people to come for their pet’s rabies vaccination," said Brent Hager, Director of the Metro Public Health Department’s Environmental Health Services.

Rabies vaccinations will be offered for $10 each for dogs and cats -- less than the average vaccination and office visit charged at area veterinarian offices.

"We want to remind everyone that we register and issue rabies vaccination tags for cats and dogs that are vaccinated at our March clinics," said Judy Ladebauche, Director of Metro Animal Care and Control. "Having a tag and registration on file helps us find a dog or cat’s owners should they lose their pets. The tag and registration will provide quick confirmation of a current rabies vaccination in bite investigations," Ladebauche said.

Metro ordinance 8.04.040 requires that dogs and cats be vaccinated annually for rabies.

Metro Animal Care and Control will offer Avid Microchip implants for $25. Microchips will not be offered at the school vaccination clinic locations.
