Here from Wikipedia is the rest of the story about the Lyme vaccine.

Vaccination
A recombinant vaccine against Lyme disease, based on the outer surface protein A (ospA) of B. burgdorferi, was developed by SmithKline Beecham. In clinical trials involving more than 10,000 people, the vaccine, called LYMErix, was found to confer protective immunity to Borrelia in 76% of adults and 100% of children with only mild or moderate and transient adverse effects. LYMErix was approved on the basis of these trials by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on 21 December 1998.
Following approval of the vaccine, its entry in clinical practice was slow for a variety of reasons, including its cost, which was often not reimbursed by insurance companies. Subsequently, hundreds of vaccine recipients reported they had developed autoimmune and other side effects. Supported by some patient advocacy groups, a number of class-action lawsuits were filed against GlaxoSmithKline, alleging the vaccine had caused these health problems. These claims were investigated by the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control, which found no connection between the vaccine and the autoimmune complaints.
Despite the lack of evidence that the complaints were caused by the vaccine, sales plummeted and LYMErix was withdrawn from the U.S. market by GlaxoSmithKline in February 2002, in the setting of negative media coverage and fears of vaccine side effects. The fate of LYMErix was described in the medical literature as a "cautionary tale"; an editorial in Nature cited the withdrawal of LYMErix as an instance in which "unfounded public fears place pressures on vaccine developers that go beyond reasonable safety considerations." The original developer of the OspA vaccine at the Max Planck Institute told Nature: "This just shows how irrational the world can be... There was no scientific justification for the first OspA vaccine LYMErix being pulled."
Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

Silver ions have been used as a topical treatment for wounds and infections.  Most commonly in the form of Silvadene, which is supplied in a cream form, and is still widely used on burn wounds today.  The body has small amounts of all kinds of metal ions running around in it, many of which are helpful in certain reactions.  However, I've never heard of silver being injected IM or IV, as I'll bet it can be either locally or systemically toxic if overused.  I don't think you can necessarily make the seemingly logical leap that if something works as an antibacterial outside the body, it is necessarily good for you when injected.

Plantman - I have no opinion regarding injectable glutathione.  The only time I've personally run across it is in trying to lessen the side effects of chemotherapy.  As in many instances these days, when a compound  / antioxidant is widespread both in the body and the marketplace, it is often pitched as a cure-all.  I'm neither pro or con here, and any further opinion about the subject from me would be uneducated.

The best most informative video I've ever seen. There are cures for your lyme but it's not simple.
