Town Hall Meeting On The Flu

We saw this on various listservs. The county is hosting a town meeting at 7 p. on Sept 14 in River Hill's Ten Oaks Ballroom to talk about the flu. WaPo has a piece on the latest CDC guidance on who should get antivirual drugs should symptoms appear (basically, those who might be most vulnerable; the rest of us are on our own).

ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Ken Ulman and Dr. Peter Beilenson, Howard County’s Health Officer, will hold a town hall meeting to provide the public with the most up-to-date information about seasonal flu and H1N1 (commonly called “Swine Flu”). Dr. Beilenson will talk about the County’s plan to protect the public, explain the difference between the seasonal flu and H1N1, talk about who should be inoculated, and how to curb the spread of the virus. Representatives from the Howard County School System, Howard County General Hospital, Howard Community College, and the County’s Office of Emergency Management will be available following Dr. Beilenson’s presentation to answer questions.
