BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) – The city’s Animal Control Unit is hosting a low-cost dog vaccination clinic on Saturday.

The drive-through clinic runs 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, located at 901 E. California Ave. Vaccines and licenses will be available for dogs living within city limits. Lines are likely to close before noon. Clinical stations will be set up on S. Owens Street. Participants and their pets should stay in their vehicles and wear masks when interacting with staff.

The clinic will offer vaccines against rabies, Bordetella (kennel cough) and DAPP.

  • DAPP vaccines are intended for puppies who need to start their vaccinations or for adult dogs who need an annual booster.
  • Rabies vaccines can be given to puppies from the age of three months, as well as adult dogs. A dog license must be purchased in conjunction with the rabies vaccine.
  • Bordetella vaccine (kennel cough) is generally required for admission to boarding and grooming facilities and is recommended for dog park use.
