Beware...a fatal flu season

02.06.18

The flu can lead to serious health complications. It can even be deadly. And this year’s flu is one of the most harmful in years. What's worse, February is the peak month for the flu. 39 states—including Maryland—are experiencing "high" flu activity.

The flu can be especially harmful to people experiencing homelessness, whose unstable living conditions and chronic illness can increase the likelihood of flu-related complications. But don't worry: it's not too late to get a flu shot! Here at Health Care for the Homeless, the flu vaccine is easily administered and has the potential to save lives.

Are you a client or do you know a client that needs a flu shot? Stop by the 1st-floor lobby at 421 Fallsway from 9-11 a.m. any Wednesday to get a shot, or simply ask a provider during a visit.

Brandon Berryain doesn’t want his position on our Board of Directors to be a status symbol. For him, it’s an opportunity to ground the Board with his lived experience and encourage other clients to get involved. Brandon says, “As much as being a leader matters, it’s being an example that matters more.”
