  • News: Three Rabid Raccoons Found in Nassau County

    "Long Island has been essential rabies-free for decades and our best chance of remaining rabies-free is an aggressive program to immunize raccoons while continuing intensive surveillance for sick animals," said Dr. David M. Ackman, commissioner of health. "Starting [this week], the New York State Department of Health will begin trapping and vaccinating animals in a two-mile radius around the area where the first rabid raccoon was detected, similar to what New York State is doing in other counties. In early September, we will enlarge the vaccination program by distributing raccoon bait across a large portion of the Town of Oyster Bay.
