It's the time of year again when our furry friends spend more time outdoors, and that means it's also rabies vaccination time. Here's the schedule of rabies clinics in Herkimer County.

Herkimer County Public Health is reminding anyone with pets that all dogs, cats and ferrets older than 3 months must have a rabies vaccination, even if they stay indoors.

  • Ferrets have to be vaccinated every year.
  • Dogs should be on a leash and cats and ferrets should be in a carrier.
  • To help speed the clinic along, there will be no exams given.
