Written by Dan Fischer on June 7, 2018
A New York Assemblyman wants the state to put money toward developing a vaccine for Lyme Disease. Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, who represents parts of Upstate New York, says New Yorkers must remain vigilant about Lyme disease. He says funds are needed to research a possible vaccine, which he calls an epidemic primarily affecting the northeast. Santabarbara has introduced a bill that would set aside state funds for this. He also encourages New Yorkers to learn about the disease and learn how to avoid ticks.
