Vector-Borne Disease Lecture

  • Berlin Senior Center 33 Colonial Drive Berlin, CT, 06037 United States (map)

As summer approaches, Central Connecticut Health District (CCHD) encourages all Connecticut residents to take precautions to protect themselves against vector-borne disease transmission. Vector-borne diseases are infections transmitted (spread) through the bite of infected blood-feeding arthropods (vectors) such as mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Vectors can carry infectious pathogens (germs) such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites that upon transmission become the causative agents of common diseases such as Lyme, Anaplasmosis/Ehrlichiosis, Babesiosis, West Nile Fever, Zika, Dengue, and Malaria.

We invite you to attend CCHD’s vector-borne disease presentation scheduled for Wednesday, June 19th from 1-2 PM at the Berlin Senior Center located at 33 Colonial Drive in Berlin, CT. Join CCHD’s Luis Pantoja, as he provides a broad overview of vector-borne diseases, including the latest data, symptomology of common diseases in CT, and recommended personal protective measures to take in order to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones as we head into the summer months!
