Rabies — United States
By law, people who own a dog or a cat in West Virginia must get them vaccinated against rabies by the age of 6 months.
The vaccine administered should be capable of providing immunity for 3 years, with a booster shot given 1 year after the initial vaccination and every 3 years thereafter.
Officials urged people to keep themselves, their family and their pets safe by keeping their pets up to date on their vaccines. Make sure your animals’ rabies vaccinations are current and avoid contact
