-A A +A

Roane County Health Department is sponsoring a series of rabies vaccination clinics later this month throughout the county.

“You are urged to have your dogs and cats vaccinated each year to comply with the Tennessee Rabies Law,” said Preston Woody, environmental health specialist at the Roane County Health Department.

Vaccinations are $12 each. All dogs and cats 3 months and older are required by law to be vaccinated.

The clinics, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., will be on April 20 in Animal Medical Center at Ladd Landing, Kingston; and Roane Veterinary Hospital at 3000 Roane State Hwy., Midtown.

Both sites, in addition to Animal Medical Center on Hwy. 27, Rockwood, will have clinics from 1 to 2:30 p.m. April 27.

“Rabies is a threat to humans as well as animals,” Woody said. “The vaccination is very important in its control.”
