We need to understand the Burden Of Lyme Disease and other tick-borne illnesses (BOLD) on individuals who have been ill with COVID-19, have taken the COVID-19 vaccine, or have been hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccine. Below is a short video explaining the BOLD survey.

Let us know your experience – Take The Survey

You are invited to share your experience with Lyme disease if you are at least 12 years of age and if:

  • You have had COVID-19
  • You have had the COVID-19 vaccine
  • You have had neither COVID-19 nor the COVID-19 vaccine

Your experience will help others living with Lyme disease in a COVID-19 Pandemic.

Note: The survey closed as of April 10, 2023.  I am grateful for the outpouring of support and to those participants who completed the survey. Here is a link for the first published paper.

Please contact Dr. Daniel Cameron with any questions or concerns at:

I caught lyme in October 2019 , After 3 courses of Anti-biotics during 2020 I was happy that the other minor symptons such as hearing loss and eyesight problems and some major joint pains were probably due to my age at 88. I did catch Covid in April 2022 after a visit to see my wifes oncologist in my local hospital, but after 2 weeks I was testing negative. As I was due a Covid booster in April I had to wait a month before having my Covid Booster.I had the Moderna booster on Friday 6th May. I fell asleep during the afternoon of Sunday 8th May and when my wife tried to wake me I was totally paralysed from my neck down. I was sent to my local hospital ER and by Tuesday 10th May I was perfectly OK .Doctors ordered CT and MRI and Xrays of my head and no sign of a stroke. I then started getting the Lyme symptons again so was put on Antibiotics 3 times a day for 28 days, Lyme has been reduced but different symptons now of pains in my legs and feet. .I have been refered to a professor of Neurology because of my complete paralysis and Moderna Vacine

What if you had Lyme and then Omicron, the variant. Are you still a candidate to take the survey or is the survey completed?
