Lawmaker Wants NY To Fund Lyme Vaccine

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.
