Rabies Vaccination Clinics Scheduled in Genesee and Orleans Counties

The Genesee and Orleans County Health Departments (GO Health) are offering their final 2023 free drive-thru rabies vaccination clinics in October. Funding for the rabies clinics are provided by the New York State Department of Health.

  • The Genesee County Rabies Vaccination Clinic will be held on Thursday, October 12, 2023 from 4-6:00pm at the Genesee County Fairgrounds (5056 East Main Street, Batavia)
  • The Orleans County Rabies Vaccination Clinic will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 9-11:30am at the Orleans County Fairgrounds (12690 State Route 31, Albion)

Vaccinations are free for dogs, cats and ferrets. Animals must be at least 3 months old. Each animal must be leashed or crated and accompanied by an adult who can control the animal. Limit 4 pets per car maximum.

“We encourage all Genesee and Orleans County residents to take advantage of our last rabies immunization clinics of 2023 and ensure their pets are protected against rabies,” stated Paul Pettit, Public Health Director for GO Health. “Rabies continues to be a serious public health concern in both Genesee and Orleans Counties and is a preventable viral disease most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. Please leave wildlife alone and do not feed, touch, or adopt wild animals, stray dogs or cats.” For more information on GO Health’s programs and services, visit GOHealthNY.org.
