It's Spring, and with that warm weather you'll likely be spending more time outdoors. Peter Buzzetti from the Chemung County Health Department dropped by our studios to talk rabies prevention, treatment, and to answer some commonly asked questions.
The Health Department offers a series of free rabies clinics throughout the year. You can find a schedule and more information on the department website.
If you, a family member or pet are bitten or scratched by wildlife, you're asked to contact the health department immediately. You can reach the department by phone at 607-737-2019.
