Lyme disease is a major public health concern in Vermont, and is only becoming more prevalent. There were nearly 800 probable cases of Lyme disease in 2016, compared to 100 cases in 2006. Untreated Lyme disease has significant effects on overall health including cardiac disease. Lyme disease also has severe impacts on public health costs, and is responsible for roughly $1 billion annually. A Lyme disease handout for patients at a primary care outpatient center in Vermont was designed to help educate the public on disease prevention and progression.
