Animal Rabies Control
Animal Rabies clinics are offered at several locations in the Spring and in the Fall to provide for the economical vaccination of dogs, cats, and ferrets.
Our next Rabies Clinic will be in the spring of 2020.
For animals to receive a 3 year vaccination, please present a current vaccination certificate.
Otherwise, all shots will be for 1 year only.
In Maryland, all dogs, cats, and ferrets must be vaccinated against rabies before 4 months of age.
Call 443-523-1700 for more information.
Animal Bite and Rabies Information
Any animal bite, whether animal to human, or animal to animal, is a potential rabies exposure. All potential exposures should be reported to the local Health Department as soon as possible. Our Environmental staff works closely with Communicable Disease nurses for clinical investigation of potential human exposures. To report a Somerset County incident, call Environmental Health section at the Somerset Co. Health Dept. during normal working hours. After hours, and on weekends or holidays, report the incident to Somerset Central at (410) 651-2633. There is always a member of the Environmental staff on-call to provide consultation relating to a possible rabies exposure.
