WHEN AND WHERE IS THE CLINIC? April 29th and May 20th from 1:30 to about 4:00 at Southwest Veterinary Medical Center in Albuquerque.
WHICH VACCINE WILL BE USED AT THE CLINIC? Medgene. This is currently the only vaccine available in the United States and the same vaccine used last year.
IS THE CLINIC FOR ANNUAL BOOSTERS OR FOR RABBITS WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN VACCINATED BEFORE? Both!
WHICH DATE DO I ATTEND IF MY RABBIT ONLY NEEDS A BOOSTER? – You choose! Since the booster is only one dose, you can select which date you’d prefer to attend.
WHEN DO I BRING MY RABBIT IF THEY HAVE NEVER RECEIVED THE MEDGENE VACCINE BEFORE? You need to attend BOTH dates because the vaccine requires two doses to be effective. If you do not attend the first date you will not be permitted to attend the second date. If you skip the second date, you will not receive a vaccine certificate because your rabbit will not be fully vaccinated.
IF MY RABBIT PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED THE FILOVAC VACCINE CAN THEY GET THE MEDGENE VACCINE? Yes. Rabbits who have previously been vaccinated with the Filovac vaccine will need both doses of the Medgene vaccine to stay up to date.
DOES MY RABBIT NEED A BOOSTER EVERY YEAR WITH THE MEDGENE VACCINE? Yes, but the annual booster is only one dose.
HOW MUCH WILL THE CLINIC COST? $33 per dose (so $33 for a booster and $66 for a currently-unvaccinated rabbit)
