After a rabies concern swept into the Greene County community of Walstonburg, now the county is stepping in with a solution.
The Health Department said it would host a free rabies vaccine clinic for the residents at their East Railroad Street location in Walstonburg on Wednesday, July 2nd from 3 - 8 p.m.
The clinic will supply a one-year rabies vaccine for cats and dogs of Walstonburg residents.
On June 23rd, WITN reported concerns from neighbors in the town who said a nearby home was overpopulated with bats. The Health Department said it had set out traps to catch animals that may have been infected with rabies, to help prevent the viral disease from spreading.
According to a flier distributed by the Greene County Health Department, this free clinic is in direct response to the concerns of rabies in the community.
