The Rabiies vac is definitely a state thing, Then ultimately County by county. Makes no sense does it? If it was really about protection then ALL counties should require it. Rabid animals don't care about crossing a county line!! As far as vets giving core vaccines once a year, in my opinion it is irresponsible. They know better.
