Lyme disease is the most common vector borne disease in Maine. Many cases are reported each year, and the number will rise as the weather continues to get warmer. Cases have been increasing each year in Maine, and occur in all 16 counties.

Other diseases that are carried by ticks in Maine include Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis and Powassan. Multiple cases of all of these tick bourne diseases have been reported here in Maine.
