Titers Determination and Rabies Vaccination Clinic
SWVS offers you the opportunity to have blood drawn for a titer determination. Blood will be drawn on Saturday, packaged, and shipped to a laboratory for titer determination. Results will be sent to the SWVS staff, who will forward your titer to you. Estimated turnaround time is six to eight weeks. Cost of the titer will be $75. If it has been a relatively long time (5 or more years) since you had a rabies booster vaccination or a titer determination, you may elect to have a booster vaccination instead of having a titer run. Cost of the vaccination will be $300. Sign up for either a titer or rabies booster as you register.
The Henry B. González Convention Center falls under Title II (State & Local Government) of the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and is maintained and operated with regard to the requirements of the Act.
