Did You Know: Lyme Disease [Infographic]
Lyme Disease Virginia
Lyme disease is transmitted by the bite of a tick, and the disease is very prevalent across the United States and throughout the world.
Contrary to popular belief, ticks know no borders and respect no boundaries. A patient's county of residence does not accurately reflect his or her Lyme disease risk because people travel, pets travel, and ticks travel.
This creates a dynamic situation with many opportunities for exposure to Lyme disease for each individual.
