Flu season is here, and options to get vaccinated might be just a house call away.
Pamela Redd, CEO of Mid-Delta Home Health & Hospice, said her organization can administer the flu shot to anyone in their own home or at their local office.
“We are a home health organization, and we deal with home health patients,” she said. “We run into people that need the flu shot all the time, every day, simply because most of our patients are the elderly population, and that’s a vulnerable population.”
County bills in limbo after disputed vote
The waning moments of an otherwise fairly uneventful two and a half hour county Board of Supervisors meeting Monday – when the Board was considering claims – sparked controversy over a 2-2 deadlock, prompting a special or emergency meeting to be called for October 9 at 9 a.m.
District 5 supervisor McKinley Daley exited the meeting during Executive Session, leaving James Dunn, Cedric Burnett, Phillis Williams and Henry Nickson to consider the county’s bills from September.
The motion to approve all claims drew “ayes” from Nickson and Williams and a “no” vote from Dunn. Burnett got up from the table, saying, “I’m out of here,” and was crossing toward an exit door when the vote was called.
