VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - It is not too soon to start thinking about mosquitoes. There are steps you can take right now to protect yourself.

The Vigo County Health Department is preparing for a program to help prevent the spread of mosquitoes.

Next month, the department is offering a tire amnesty program. The program begins April 1st and runs through May 8th. This is for Vigo county residents only.

Call the health department at (812)234-9181 to schedule an appointment.
