Health Department Reminds Residents to Get Flu Vaccinations


LEONARDTOWN, MD (September 22, 2014) – Influenza (flu) season is unpredictable and can vary from year to year. Flu activity commonly peaks from December through February in the U.S.; however, it can begin as early as October. Because it takes about two weeks after vaccination to provide protection against the flu, the St. Mary’s County Health Department reminds residents to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Children 6 months through 8 years of age who need two doses of vaccine should receive the first dose as soon as possible to allow time to get the second dose before the start of flu season. The two doses should be given at least 4 weeks apart.
 
Influenza immunizations are recommended for everyone over the age of six months. It is especially important for individuals who are at high risk for complications, including:
Children six months to 18 years of age
Persons 50 years of age and older
Pregnant women
Persons with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, heart, lung or kidney disease
Persons undergoing therapy or with a condition that may weaken their immune system
Persons who care for someone in these groups should be sure to get vaccinated to avoid spreading the flu to them. This includes healthcare workers, caregivers, and daycare and school workers.
 
Immunizations are typically offered in primary care doctors’ offices. The St. Mary’s County Health Department also offers flu vaccinations, by appointment only, for a fee of $25. Please call 301-475-4330 to schedule an appointment.
 
More information on influenza vaccination is available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) will patch the concrete surface of the MD 4 (Patuxent Beach Road) Governor Thomas Johnson Bridge over the Patuxent River in Calvert and St. Mary’s counties beginning Tuesday night, Sept. 23. Crews will close a single lane from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and flaggers will guide motorists through the work zone. This routine patching will take three nights, weather permitting.
 
SHA’s contractor for the patching project is Allied Contractors of Baltimore through a $1.4 million, multi-location “area wide” maintenance contract. More than 27,000 vehicles cross the Thomas Johnson Bridge each day so motorists should plan extra travel time.
 
Customers with questions about this project may contact the District 5 Office at 410-841-1000 or toll-free at 1-800-331-5603 or by email at shadistrict5@sha.state.md.us. For the latest traffic conditions, log onto www.md511.org.
 
While SHA and its partners work hard to maintain safe traffic mobility in work zones, each driver needs to actively modify his or her driving style to help prevent crashes. Stay alert – look for reduced speed limits, narrow driving lanes and highway workers. Slow down and don't follow too closely. Safer Driving. Safer Work Zones. For Everyone!

Water Advisory: Blue-Green Algae Bloom near Mallows Bay


The Charles County Department of Health advises the public that an algae bloom has occurred in local waters.  Concentrations of blue-green algae, called Microcystis, have been reported near Liverpool Point and Mallows Bay and the Potomac River.  Microcystis aeruginosa is a naturally occurring algae in Maryland's Chesapeake Bay and fresh waters.  Blooms of blue-green algae can occur in nutrient rich environments and be harmful when they occur in high concentrations or when they produce toxins in large amounts. 
 
If bathers see bright green waters, sometimes with a surface scum that resembles green paint, they are advised to take the following precautions:
 
·         Do not swim in areas where a bloom of blue-green algae is evident.
·         Do not drink water from an area with the appearance of a blue-green algal bloom.
·         Wash off with fresh water as soon as possible if contact is unavoidable.
·         See a physician or healthcare provider if any skin irritation occurs or persists.
·         Keep pets and livestock away from bloom areas. Contact your veterinarian if your pets or livestock have come in contact with the bloom.
 
Dianna E. Abney, M.D. Charles County Health Officer states, “This is a temporary environmental alert. Residents should be aware of the recommendations and adhere to the precautions. We expect this bloom to disperse in a few days to a week.”
 
Additional information is available from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources website: www.dnr.state.md.us/bay/hab/ or call the Charles County Department of Health Environmental Services Department at 301-609-6773.

Motorcycle Accident Leaves Two Critically Injured


On September 14, 2014 at approximately 2045 hours members of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Bureau and Crash Reconstruction Team responded to Maryland Route 2/4 and Rousby Hall Road, Lusby, Maryland 20765 for a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a motorcycle.  Upon arrival on the scene units located a blue 2012 Ford Focus on the northbound shoulder of MD Route 2/4 just north of the intersection.  The Ford Focus was heavily damaged.  A 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle was destroyed and located on its side against the northbound guardrail. The vehicles were involved in an apparent head-on collision.  Motorcycle operator and passenger were both ejected from the motorcycle during the collision.   
 
Preliminary investigation revealed the following:
 
2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle, operated by Rudolph Mason Johnson, of Lusby, was traveling southbound on MD Route 2/4 and attempted to turn eastbound (left) on Rousby Hall Road on a flashing red arrow.  The motorcycle was also occupied by Mona Rene Johnson, of Lusby. As the motorcycle entered the intersection of MD Route 2/4 and Rousby Hall Road, a 2012 Ford Fusion, operated by Lauren Rebecca Belskie of Saint Leonard, was traveling northbound on MD Route 2/4 and collided with the motorcycle.  Per numerous witness accounts the operator of the Ford had a green light at the time of the collision.
 
Lauren Rebecca Belskie sustained minor injuries during the collision and was transported to the Calvert Memorial Hospital.  Belskie is listed in stable condition.  Rudolph Johnson was transported to Prince George’s County Hospital (Shock Trauma) to be treated for the injuries sustained in a collision.  Mona Johnson was transported to Washington Hospital Center MedStar to be treated for the injuries she sustained in the collision.  Both Rudolph and Mona Johnson are listed in critical condition at the time of this press release. 
 
Motorcycle operator error and failure to yield the right of way to a through traveling vehicle are the contributing factors to this collision.  The final cause of the collision is pending full investigation.       
 
DFC G. Gott, of the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office, is investigating the collision with assistance from the Crash Reconstruction Team.  Any information related to this investigation is to be forwarded to DFC G. Gott at gottgc@co.cal.md.us or 410-535-2800.
