COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The public health department held a drive-thru rabies clinic Tuesday.
It was held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the parking lot of the Columbus Civic Center.
For a cost of $5, people were able to give their dogs or cats rabies shots without even getting out of the cars.
There was a steady stream of cars as our cameras caught local veterinarians giving shots to big and little dogs.
Pam Fair with the health department talk to us about the importance of the clinic.
"If a human is exposed to rabies it can be a deadly disease," Fair said. "That is the whole reason we are out today to protect."
The Columbus Health Department has been conducting the drive rabies clinic for the past five years.
