Rabies Vaccination Clinic Scheduled in Brookneal Area –
Saturday, September 22
RUSTBURG, VA – Campbell County, in cooperation with Halifax County, is offering a drive-through rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, September 22, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. in the town of Brookneal at Dodd’s Farm Supply (1103 Lynchburg Ave). Service lines will form in the large parking lot, south of the farm supply building. Volunteers will direct traffic on-site and funnel vehicles to specific stations to complete needed paperwork. Citizens will then be directed to payment tents, before veterinarians administer vaccinations to pets (while still in the vehicles). Those attending are asked to keep animals secured and in vehicles at all times.
Rabies vaccines will be administered at a cost of $5.00 each. Staff will strive to accommodate citizens as quickly as possible, however, only those in line prior to
12:00 p.m. will be served.
The first rabies shot is effective for one (1) year. Subsequent rabies vaccinations given close to the expiration date are good for three years. If an animal has had a previous rabies vaccination, please bring the former certificate for proof; this will expedite completion of the new certificate. Citizens are required to present a current rabies certificate to the Treasurer of Campbell County to purchase a dog license, thus it is important to save a copy of the certification. Envelopes will be provided on-site in which to place payment and a copy of rabies certification for an animal license. These envelopes will be delivered by staff to the Treasurer of Campbell County on Monday, September 24; licenses and certificates of vaccination will then be mailed accordingly.
