In the past few weeks, you may have seen some small packets of vaccines that were dropped from the sky. Those packets were for wild animals to consume all over Western New York to reduce the amount of rabid cases in Erie County. If you had found one in your yard you should wear gloves and throw in the garbage. 

According to the Erie County website, here are things you should know:

Things to Know Before Coming to the Clinics:

  • Dogs, cats and ferrets that are 4 months of age and older are eligible for this clinic.
  • Due to expected demand, ECDOH is limiting registrations to 3 pets per vehicle.
  • Staff are asking pet owners to limit the number of people in the vehicle.
  • Face masks or cloth face coverings will be required at all times, and physical distancing will be strictly enforced by clinic staff.
