It occurs to me that a lot of the concern from the Lyme patient community over the use of vaccines could be eliminated if R & D shied away from human vaccine development.
Mice and other animals in the woods could ingest oral vaccines which could prevent the transmission of Borrelia burgdorferi to reservoir hosts on which ticks feed. Not only that, but this could have an extended effect of helping pets, too.
I think creating oral vaccines to block transmission of Bb to animals and pets is a good idea.
