Rabies Vaccination Clinics to be Held

Each year SC DHEC asks for participation in helping to prevent the spread of rabies by offering vaccination clinics throughout the state. Colleton County has been invited to join the 2018 effort to combat this deadly disease.

Fees vary by clinic location. Rabies vaccinations won't exceed $10 per pet. Dogs must be on a leash. Cats must be in a carrier.

As in the past, the target month for holding these clinics is the month of April; however, some clinics may be offered as early as March and some may be offered through May. Colleton County Clinics are listed below.
