First Influenza Case Reported In Maryland

Health Officials Report First Influenza Case in Maryland

BALTIMORE, MD – 12/30/2011 – The flu has officially arrived in Maryland. The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) announced today the first laboratory confirmed case of seasonal influenza in Maryland. This season’s first confirmed case comes months later than last season’s. Officials say last season’s first confirmed case was reported on October 14.
Health officials urge the public to be vaccinated. It is not too late to receive this year’s seasonal vaccine.
Influenza is a naturally occurring viral disease that causes respiratory infections. Symptoms may include:

  • A sudden onset of fever
  • Dry cough
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Tiredness
  • Sore throat
  • Nasal congestion or stuffiness.

"Reduce the chance of spreading flu and other viruses by covering your cough with a tissue or your sleeve, washing your hands often and staying home if you are sick," says Fran Lessans, President and Founder of Passport Health, the largest private provider of travel medical services and immunizations in the United States. Founded in 1994, the Baltimore native company has expanded to 200 vaccine clinics nationwide.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recognized Passport Health in June of this year for 10 years of excellence in improving influenza immunization uptake and reducing the health impact of influenza.  Passport Health is proud to contribute to increasing immunization rates and provides onsite wellness clinics for major corporations nationwide. Customized wellness solutions not only include flu and pneumonia immunization clinics but also cholesterol and glucose screenings, physicals, drug screenings as well as travel medical services.

"It's never too late to get vaccinated against the flu."
