EEE Vaccination Rebate Program for NY Horses
In response to mounting concerns regarding the increased number of cases of Eastern Equine 
Encephalitis (EEE), both in humans and in horses in New York over the last few years, the New York State
Senate has recently allocated funds for various activities meant to reduce the threat of EEE in people 
and in horses.
The NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets, Division of Animal Industry has been assigned the task 
of running a vaccination program by offering $15.00 discounts to horse owners who get their horses 
vaccinated against EEE. The program is open to all horses residing in New York State.  Veterinarians who 
participate in the rebate program agree to discount their vaccination fees by $15.00 per horse. The state 
will then reimburse the veterinarian $15.00 per vaccinated horse. The vaccination must be given by the 
veterinarian or veterinary technician in order to qualify. 
The program will run from June 10, 2012 until August 31, 2012. This is a “first-come, first-served” 
program or until our funds are expended. If funds are left over after 8-31-12, we will restore the rebate 
program in early 2013. 
Any veterinarian legally able to practice in New York State can participate. Veterinarians need to fill out 
a form requesting the desired number of rebate certificates. (Only one horse per rebate certificate). The 
Rebate Request Form can be found online @ http://www.agriculture.ny.gov/AI/vet.html (look under the 
section called “Forms”) or we can fax, email or mail it to you.  Complete the request form and fax it back 
to us. Once we receive your request, we mail you the certificates along with the tax ID forms (W-9) that 
you must complete and send back with the original certificates once the horse(s) have been vaccinated. 
Complete instructions for the rebate certificates can be found on the backside of the certificates. All 
original forms must be sent back in order to receive your rebate.  No additional incurred veterinary fees 
will be paid for (i.e. – call charge, biohazard fees, etc). Once all forms are received, we will verify this and 
send you a rebate check.
If you have any questions, please email or call the Division of Animal Industry at dai@agriculture.ny.gov
or 518-457-3502.
