Rabies clinic for humans offered by health department
CENTREVILLE — The Queen Anne’s County Department of Health announces their Rabies Pre-Exposure Immunization Clinic for humans. The Department of Health encourages all residents who work with animals or who have hobbies that bring them into close contact with potentially rabid animals to receive this life-preserving vaccine series.
Department of Health officials say rabies is a serious disease that affects the ner vous system. It is transmitted through the saliva and neural tissue of infected animals, usually by a bite or scratch. Mammals such as raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, cats, dogs and livestock can carry rabies. There is no cure once an individual is infected with the virus.
The clinic will run daily from August 15 through August 19, by appointment at the Queen Anne’s County Health Department at 206 N. Commerce Street in Centreville. If you have been previously immunized, the Department of Health recommends a blood test every other year to confirm that you are still protected. Please contact Karey Minor-McCauley, RN at 410-758-0720, ext. 4432, for inquiries regarding cost or to schedule an appointment.
