Horse owners urged to vaccinate
The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry is urging horse owners to vaccinate their animals against West Nile virus and Eastern Equine Encephalitis. Mosquitoes can transmit the viruses to both humans and horses, but there isn’t a vaccine available for humans.
The department also urged horse owners to eliminate standing water on their property where mosquitoes could breed.
