Storyboard Text

  • Interesting fact about Lyme Disease...  The tick that carries Lyme Disease also carries other tick borne diseases.
  • Hang on! There is a black thing on my arm!?
  • Go Long!
  • I don´t know but I am worried, let´s go ask my mom.
  • Well, what is it?
  • Huh, looks like a tick to me.
  • I hope the tick isn´t a vector of Lyme Disease, which is caused by a bacteria that the tick is exposed to.  Good thing Lyme Disease cannot be spread among humans.
  • Yay!! Thanks mom!
  • Interesting Fact about Lyme Disease... If not treated, it can spread to your heart, nervous system and joints.
  • Got it! Look at that little tick.
  • Yup, looks like all of the tick is out.  Good thing you removed it so quickly, looks like it had Lyme Disease.  If the tick passed it on to you, you would had a fever, rash and you might feel more tired than usual.
  • And if I did get Lyme Disease?
  • Hey doc, he had a tick in his arm, we just removed it but were checking to be sure all of it is out.
  • Antibiotics for a few weeks would do the trick.
  • Hey what did the doctor say?
  • To prevent ticks from transmitting diseases such as Lyme Disease, ¨remove ticks quick.¨
  • She said that if my mom did not get the tick out so quickly, the Lyme Disease could have spread to my joints and maybe even my heart.  Then it would become dangerous.
