Lyme disease is a tick-borne illness that can cause serious long-term symptoms if untreated. For people who live in areas where ticks are common, a preventative vaccine would be better than current measures like insect repellants and checking for ticks.

Who may participate:
Healthy children (between 5 years and 17 years) old and adults (18 years of age and older) who live in places or participate in activities that increase their risk for Lyme disease. Risk factors for Lyme include:
