Health Department Offers Low-cost Pet Vaccination Clinic on March 10

The Lake County Health Department/Community Health Center's Animal Care and Control Program, in conjunction with various organizations throughout the county, offers low-cost pet vaccination clinics during the warmer months of the year. In 2011, the off-site vaccination clinics saw the largest number of attendees yet, resulting in 1,943 pets being vaccinated.

 

From 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 10, a clinic will be held in collaboration with the 4-H at the Fremont Township Center, 22376 W. Erhart Road, Mundelein. The clinic provides a convenient and affordable way for Lake County residents to keep pets up to date with their shots and rabies tags.

 

The vaccination costs are as follows:

 

For Pets Spayed/Neutered

One-year rabies vaccination and Lake County tag: $20.00

One-year rabies vaccination, tag and distemper: $25.00

Distemper complex only: $10.00

Microchip: $15.00

 

For Pets Not Spayed/Neutered

One-year rabies vaccination and Lake County tag: $60.00

One-year rabies vaccination, tag and distemper: $65.00

Pets will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. All animals brought to the clinic must be at least four months old. Dogs must be leashed and cats placed in carriers. Only cash will be accepted on site.

   

The Health Department's Animal Care and Control Program tracks pet vaccinations and rabies tags, investigates animal bites and complaints of nuisance and neglect, as well as impounds stray animals.
