2021 Lyme and Other Tickborne Disease Information
Lyme disease is the most common vector borne disease in Maine. Ticks are already active, and we expect the number of Lyme disease cases to increase as the weather continues to get warmer.
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month in Maine and we want to encourage Mainers to stay tick free using “Stop. Check. Prevent.”
