Niagara County Holding Free Rabies Clinic This Week
The Niagara County Department of Health is offering free rabies vaccines in a socially distanced way.
The department will be offering a free rabies clinic, and you won't have to leave your car to get it.
“In order to maintain social distancing and manage crowds that would typically arrive at a rabies clinic, certain new protocols are being established to protect both the workers and the public from possible asymptomatic (infectious, yet symptom-free) persons."
-Scott Ecker, Associate Supervisory Public Health Sanitarian.
The clinic will happen on November 14 from 9 a.m. until noon at the Niagara Falls Amtrak Station, at 825 Depot Avenue West.
You will need to pre-register to participate and appointments are limited. Registration begins today, November 9, at noon.

- Persons arriving by vehicle shall remain in vehicle while awaiting direction.
