GREENBELT, Md. — There has never been a better time to get your cat or dog vaccinated.
On May 8, a free drive-up vaccination clinic is coming to Prince George's County.
The free clinic at the Wayne K. Curry Sports and Learning Complex will open up at 10 a.m. and remain open until 3 p.m., while supplies last.
The event will be held rain or shine.
The clinic will provide rabies and distemper vaccinations. As well as micro-chipping and free pet licenses to county residents.
Proof of Prince George's County residence is required.
The clinic is made possible thanks to a partnership with the Department of the Environment (DoE) Animal Services Division (ASD) and Prince George’s County Health Department.
“We are excited to partner with the Health Department to offer drive-up free rabies and distemper vaccinations to County residents for their pets. The free services will help provide some financial relief to those owners who want to ensure their pets stay healthy and happy,” said DoE Director Andrea Crooms.
In addition to living within the county, the following criteria must be met in order for residents to receive free services:
- Pets must be at least four months old to receive a rabies vaccine. Rabies vaccines are good for one year unless a prior rabies certificate is provided at service.
- Pets must be on a leash or carrier and always under control.
- Be prepared to stay in your vehicle for an extended period.
- Animals will be removed from your vehicle to receive vaccination(s) when it is your turn.
