The Lexington Health Department has rescheduled its annual low-cost vaccination clinic, citing bad weather.

The clinic will now be held from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. on May 14.

The event will be held at Douglass Park, 726 Georgetown Street, and the usual $20 vaccine will cost just $3. Cats must be in a carrier and all dogs must be on a leash.

“A rabies shot gives protection to the pet as well as its owner and the other people of Lexington,” said Luke Mathis, LFCHD Environmental Health team leader and one of the event’s organizers. “We’re pleased to provide this useful public health service as we help Lexington be well.”

State law requires that all dogs, cats and ferrets maintain a current rabies vaccination.

The clinic also provides pet owners with the opportunity to purchase an animal license for $8 if the animal has been spayed or neutered
