USDA proposes additional Ohio and West Virginia counties for Oral Rabies vaccine trials, supplement for the Environmental Assessment available for comment.

USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has prepared a supplemental environmental assessment (EA) relative to an oral rabies vaccination field trial in New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Vermont, and West Virginia. The supplemental EA analyzes expanding the field trial for an experimental oral rabies vaccine for wildlife to additional areas in Ohio and West Virginia. The proposed field trial is necessary to evaluate whether the wildlife rabies vaccine will produce sufficient levels of population immunity against raccoon rabies. The document is available for review and comment at https://www.regulations.gov/docket?D=APHIS-2018-0033 .
