Prevent Rabies!
Have Your Dogs, Cats and Ferrets Properly Vaccinated

PetsRabies is an infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system. People get rabies from the bite of an infected, or rabid, animal. Wild mammals like raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyotes or bats as well as domestic animals like dogs, cats, horses and cattle can transmit rabies to people. Rabies is still very common in the wild in the United States.

Fortunately, rabies is 100% preventable with vaccination. Each year MCHD, in partnership with several local veterinarians, provides rabies vaccination clinics.

Check our our 2016 list of rabies clinics. Get rabies vaccinations for only $5!


If you come to the Madison County Health Department's Richmond Clinic, you might see the staff wearing a new button. We've started a new CARE (Cardiovascular Assessment, Risk reduction and Education) program.

Nurses will check your blood pressure anytime. It is a quick visit, no appointment needed and it is a FREE service.
