In the Spotlight


It’s summer and bugs are crawling everywhere! There are the ones that we can see like ticks and mosquitoes, and the ones that are invisible to the naked eye, but could be hidden in the air, soil and even in our furry friends. Although these bugs are tiny - even microscopic, make no mistake, they can pose a big threat.

That’s no reason to get bugged out and not enjoy the sunshine and fresh air! To help you stay healthy while exploring the beautiful outdoors, Vaccines411 has put the spotlight on Summer Bugs! and compiled a list of resources to help protect you and your loved ones from bugs that can threaten your summer fun. Check out our selected resources against mosquitoes, ticks that can carry Lyme disease, the rabies virus, tetanus and finally vaccine preventable diseases that have the potential to ruin your travel plans if you’re unprepared.
