(AP) _ The Vermont Health Department is holding three clinics to
test people for the mosquito-borne disease eastern equine
encephalitis that killed two Vermonters last year.
The study of volunteers is to determine how many people have
been exposed to the virus, but have not gotten seriously ill. The
first clinic was held last month in Brandon, the second clinic was
held this Wednesday, May 15, at the Sudbury Town Hall, 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.
