The Florida Department of Health in Lake County Issues a Rabies Alert for the Mount Dora Area of Lake County and Reminds Residents of the Importance of Animal Vaccinations

 Mount Dora – Aaron Kissler, Administrator of the Florida Department of Health in Lake County has issued a Rabies Alert for the Mount Dora Area of Lake County.  This is in response to a fox which tested positive for rabies on Friday, August 22, 2014.

All residents and visitors in Lake County should be aware that rabies is present in the wild animal population and domestic animals are at risk if not vaccinated. The public is asked to maintain a heightened awareness that rabies is active in Lake County. Alerts are designed to increase awareness to the public, but they should not give a false sense of security to areas that have not been named as under an alert.

·         North boundary- Highway 441
