BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Health Department is holding the second of 3 clinics to test people for the mosquito-borne disease eastern equine encephalitis that killed two Vermonters last year.
The clinic will be held on Tuesday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sudbury Town Hall.
The study of volunteers is to determine how many people have been exposed to the virus, but have not gotten seriously ill. A clinic was held last month in Brandon and another will be held May 29 in Whiting.
Last September an 89-year-old man from Brandon and a 49-year-old man from Sudbury died from EEE.
