Lung cancer won't quit, even if you did. If you are age 50 or older, have a 20 pack-year smoking history, and are a current smoker OR have quit smoking in the last 15 years, you should be screened for lung cancer.

Lung cancer is the #1 cause of cancer death in the United States, with cigarette smoking being the #1 cause of lung cancer. If you smoke, get scanned.

The Harford County Health Department offers no cost lung screenings to uninsured Maryland residents. Must meet age guidelines & income guidelines.

In alignment with CDC guidance, face coverings are still required for everyone on public transportation, and in schools, child care and health care settings.

The health department still believes it is extremely beneficial for face coverings to be worn indoors for unvaccinated people. Similar to healthy eating, getting adequate sleep, and exercising, these behaviors are beneficial to overall health, but remain a choice, not a mandate.

Yesterday, Gov. Hogan and Cal Ripken came to visit Harford County's mass vaccination site at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. The rain stopped just in time for Gov. Hogan and Mr. Ripken to encourage everyone who hasn't gotten their vaccine yet, to stop by Ripken Stadium, Tuesday thru Saturday, 8 AM to 3 PM, for a NO APPOINTMENT vaccine! It's so easy!

Good morning, friends! We recently posted a graph indicating the racial differences among those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine. After reading the comments and several emails, it was brought to our attention how some were offended by this post. This post was a monumental time for the African American population, who, for the first time, the vaccinated outnumbered the vaccinated white population in Harford County. This was a public health win in our county! This was great news to report. At the beginning of the vaccine distribution, if you recall, African Americans were not expected to get vaccinated due to hesitancies. Valid hesitancies. Last week was a huge milestone and we were wanted to bring that to light.

We deeply apologize to anyone we offended with this post, as it was never intended to be offensive.

People had asked, "why does race matter?" In public health, racial data matters! It's how we determine equity, disparities, health outcomes, etc.

Please know we are committed to sharing data with you, being transparent, and trying to communicate the best we can. We appreciate everyone who reached out to us and we learned the need to communicate our graphs a little better. Your comments were not taken lightly. Thanks to all.
