"Now Pfizer and French biotech Valneva are aiming to avoid previous pitfalls in developing

a new vaccine to protect both adults and kids as young as 5

from the most common Lyme strains on two continents."

https://apnews.com/article/science-health-ticks-73fab8e29f3e2243c2db5bc33b3265e1?

"The companies aim to recruit at least 6,000 people in Lyme-prone areas

including the Northeast U.S. plus Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden.

They’ll receive three shots, either the vaccine or a placebo, between now and next spring’s tick season.

A year later, they’ll get a single booster dose."

I don't know what to think of these two articles. Anyone saying anything about them in the lyme community?

[confused]

They are centering on Northeast US. which is not Ohio.

I would not volunteer for the study, as the vaccine is too much like the one that was rejected years ago.

Also from what I read, it does not have a way to know if the person being vaccinated has or had Lyme disease. People with Lyme disease had some bad reactions to that one.

Also, it doesn't say what the cost or accuacy is for this one. And if the final version requires three shots over a year and a booster.

Lots of people would just get the first one and think they were safe once this is on the market!

The previous one did not go well. I would suggest no one try this new one. You never know what's going to happen.
