Cherokee County Environmental Health Officials announced that they have received confirmation of rabies in a local raccoon.

Glen Gordy of the county environmental health office stated, “We had a positive raccoon notification from the state lab on December 10.”
The North Georgia Health District has now opened provision of H1N1 vaccine to the general public.

Health departments in Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield Counties will now provide the vaccine at no charge to the general population. However, an administrative fee may be charged through Medicare, Medicaid, and all third party insurance including State Health Benefit plans for United Health Care and CIGNA. Residents are asked to bring their insurance cards at the time of service. Service will be on a first-come, first-served basis until the current vaccine supply is depleted.
