Tonight I got my Rabies Vaccine

We live in a town that gives free rabies shots for dogs and cats if you happen to be in town when they are giving them.  This year my owners were out of town for the weekend, so I had to go get my shot tonight.  I hate getting shots, and am glad it's over-with now.  My owner had a flu shot a couple of days ago and is talking about how much his arm hurts as a result...well a rabies shot isn't any fun either.

The Center of Disease Control (CDC) has written a publication, "What You Need to Know About the Rabies Vaccination" to help you understand what this shot is all about.

Now we wait and see if my rabies vaccination shot site hurts, but hurt or not, it's something that has to be done or I don't get my annual dog license, and if they come around and we don't have our licenses, there is a fine.  So not getting your rabies shot can lead from one problem to another, and are a must in our Town.

How about your Town or City, are rabies shots required where you live too?
