May 2019 was proclaimed Tick-Borne Disease Awareness Month in New Jersey by Governor Murphy. As part of this initiative, we will be reminding everyone of all ages about the importance of the identification, prevention, and treatment of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases.
In New Jersey, there are many tick-borne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis. Information on preventing tick-borne diseases is available online at https://www.nj.gov/health/cd/topics/vectorborne.shtml.
Additionally, please see the poster and brochure below for further information.
