The Oneida County Health Department is holding a series of rabies clinics throughout the county to prevent the disease’s spread.

Bobbi Jo Kahl with the Health Department says pets exposed to rabies without being vaccinated first may have to be quarantined for six months or euthanized  Humans would also need treatment, requiring a series of shots.
