Reports of Lyme disease up in New Hampshire

Print More

There were nearly five times as many reports of Lyme disease in New Hampshire as in Vermont in 2005 — 265 in the Granite State versus 54 in the Green Mountain State.

That has some health advocates worried that Vermont isn’t doing a good enough job recognizing a disease delivered by biting ticks.

And health authorities say early detection of Lyme disease can help with treatment.

Vermont health care providers and laboratories are required to report Lyme disease cases to the Department of Health.
