For several years, Pennsylvania has lead the nation in the number of reported Lyme Disease cases. School-age children (5-14 years) are among the highest at risk, but even very young children may become infected. Education is key.

Transmitted by the bite of a blacklegged, or deer tick, Lyme Disease can be treated successfully with antibiotics. Pennsylvanians must be aware of basic precautions to take, warning signs and treatment. Learn more at these websites: Chester County Health Dept.
