Rabies Clinic?

Does anyone know if the Mobile Rabies Vaccine program is coming back to Malden? Last yr we brought our dog to the firehouse on Salem St to have his rabies vaccine done. It was done by North Shore Animal Hosp. I called them to ask and the ladies up front have no idea when it will come back. I was advised by my dogs vet that if I do not have it done before the one yr Mark of last yrs that I could" get in trouble" . The mobile clinic was only $10.00 vs an average of $35.00+ at the local vets. Any definite answer would be great. ( shaking head at how North Shore Animal Hosp doesn't know by now) Thanks in advance~

Typically the first rabbies vaccine shot is followed by a booster 1 year afterwards and then boosters every 3 years after that. Great job on remembering needing to get the booster!
