Maryland Blogger: Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic, Montgomery County, MD

Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic, Montgomery County, MD

Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic, Sunday, July 15, 2018

 

Rabies is caused by a virus that animals and people can get through certain exposures to the saliva or nervous tissue from a rabid animal and is nearly always fatal without proper post exposure prophylaxis treatment. It is a zoonotic virus, which means it can be spread from animals to people. Rabies is 100% preventable. In most cases, preventing rabies is as simple as ensuring adequate animal vaccination and control, avoiding contact with wild animals, and educating those at risk.
