10A NCAC 41G .0101       TIME OF RABIES VACCINATION

(a)  When rabies vaccine is administered by a certified rabies vaccinator to a dog or cat, the dog or cat shall be re‑vaccinated annually.

(b)  When rabies vaccine is administered by a licensed veterinarian to a dog or cat, the dog or cat shall be re‑vaccinated one year later and every three years thereafter, if a rabies vaccine licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a three‑year vaccine is used.  Annual re‑vaccination shall be required for all rabies vaccine used other than the U.S. Department of Agriculture three‑year vaccine.  However, when a local board of health adopts a resolution stating that in order to control rabies and protect the public health annual vaccination is necessary within the area over which they have jurisdiction, then the dog or cat must be vaccinated annually regardless of the type vaccine used, until the resolution is repealed.
