Rabid Raccoon Found In Riverview Area

Full Story
A raccoon in the area of Frost Aster Drive in Riverview is the first confirmed case of rabies for 2019 in Hillsborough County. No rabies alert has been issued. An alert is not being issued since this is a single case found in wildlife. However, this incident serves as a reminder to ensure pets are up-to-date on rabies vaccination. It should be expected that there is always some level of the virus in our wildlife population.

A large increase in influenza (flu) activity in schools has been reported to the Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough County (DOH-Hillsborough). Those who haven’t received the flu vaccine for this flu season should get it now. Flu activity typically peaks between December and February, and it can last as late as May.

Yearly flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.
