Are some people immune to developing Lyme disease? Study identifies patients with immunity to Lyme disease. But we cannot count on natural immunity to the infection.

Are some people immune to developing Lyme disease? Study identifies patients with immunity to Lyme disease. But we cannot count on natural immunity to the infection.
The authors reported natural immunity lasting up to 5 years to the initial strain of Lyme disease. The authors did not find natural immunity for other strains of B. burgdorferi. The estimated number of averted cases of Lyme disease per year ranged from 319 to 2378. This is less than 1% of the estimated 300,000 cases reported each year.
