Health Dept. launches online 'Tick Tracker'

Posted: Updated:

There's a new on-line tool to help track ticks in Vermont.

Anyone can contribute tick sightings to the tracker on the Health Department web site.
The deer tick, which transmits Lyme disease, is the most frequently found tick in Vermont.  Prompt removal can prevent illness, so people should check themselves and their children for ticks at least once a day.

The web site also has information about tick-borne diseases and how to prevent tick bites.
