Ritchie Hosts EEE Clinics
State Sen. Patty Ritchie is hosting two vaccination clinics for horses to prevent a mosquito-borne brain infection that killed 12 horses and a little girl last year in central and northern New York.
Ritchie says the location was chosen because almost half the horses killed by the virus are owned by Amish families.
A girl, 4 year old Maggie Sue Wilcox of the Oswego County community of New Haven, died last year from the disease.
Thursday's clinic is 6 to 8 p.m. at the Herschberger Farm at 210 Irish Settlement Road.
The second is 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the town of New Haven highway department.
