Zika Summer 2017
Zika is spread mostly by the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (Ae. aegypti and Ae. albopictus). These mosquitoes bite during the day and night. Zika can be passed from a pregnant woman to her fetus. Infection during pregnancy can cause certain birth defects. There is no vaccine or medicine for Zika. Local mosquito-borne Zika virus transmission has been reported in the continental United States. The best tool against Zika is prevention; avoiding mosquitoes and mosquito bites is the most effective way to protect yourself. To learn more about Zika and mosquito prevention, visit https://www.cdc.gov/zika/
