Lyme Vaccination A Good Idea?

Hi. I have an eight month teacup Pomeranian. Her vet wants to give her the Lyme disease vaccine. I've been reading some pretty bad things about it and I'm not sure I want to do it. what do you think?

I am not sure what negatives you have been shown, I would be glad to address those individually if you could list a few.  With any vaccine you have to weigh the advantages against some risks.  With Lyme vaccination your dogs lifestyle and geographical location (including travel, vacations etc) are important factors.  Please let me know and I will try to help further.
