This shot is not a treatment for a lyme bite. I think this is another example of ignorance about Lyme with medical professionals. I can remember one time having a tetanus shot and getting about as sick as I have ever been from the reaction to it--I actually thought I was close to death. I was told there is a bovine and horse serum, and that I was probably allergic to one of them. But not knowing which was which I never had another one even when in the beginning of my Lyme symptoms, my jaw hurt and would lock so badly that I even suspected lockjaw! Of course now at least I know what the jaw symptoms were.
I hope your dad gets the proper help soon.
