Lyme disease vaccine? Yes, please.
Lyme disease treatment could get simpler thanks to a new vaccine that is on its way.
While nobody likes ticks, the infection is becoming increasingly common in the United States.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that over 30,000 cases of Lyme disease are reported every year. Not to mention, the actual rate is likely higher than the number of reported cases.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that is spread by infected black-legged ticks. Many people don’t even realize the risk of getting the infection and do little to protect themselves when they go outside.
It’s easy to overlook a Lyme disease infection. In many cases, the first sign of infection is a red rash marked by a bullseye. Over time, you might start feeling flu-like symptoms, such as fever, headache, body aches or fatigue.
Even so, unless you’ve seen a tick on your body, you might not realize the true cause of the symptoms.
