    National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (U.S.). Division of Vector Borne Diseases.
  • Description:
    Virtually everyone on earth is vulnerable to diseases from viruses and bacteria transmitted to people through bites of mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other insects, known as vectors. West Nile virus, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever are some of the more well­known vector­borne diseases in the United States. Dengue virus infections, a major health problem in Puerto Rico, infect as many as 400 million worldwide each year and can be deadly.

    Increasing global travel, urbanization, and climate change are contributing to vector­borne disease outbreaks in new regions and countries. These diseases can be difficult to prevent and control, particularly since vaccines are available for only a few vector­borne diseases.
