Adults aged 45 years and older have high rates of tick-borne disease in Maine. Maine CDC developed the challenge in order to help reduce the number of tick-borne diseases contracted within this age group. The goal of this challenge is to prevent tick-borne diseases through the prevention of tick bites.
Tick-Free ME will take place during the month of July. The deadline to enroll in Tick-Free ME is June 22, 2016.
Please click here to sign-up. Anyone 45 years and older can participate in the challenge.
At the end of June, libraries will receive packets to distribute to each person that has enrolled. Participants who complete each survey will be entered into a prize-winning raffle.
