West Nile Virus
Please encourage 4-H horse project youth, leaders, and parents to vaccinate 4-H project horses, (ALL horses, actually), for West Nile Virus (WNV). Previously vaccinated horses need an annual booster in early spring to optimize protection for the coming mosquito season. Naïve horses need a series of two vaccines and will not achieve adequate protection until a week after the second injection, so time is of the essence.
