H1N1 peaks, but vaccine still a good idea for anyone

The North Dakota Department of Health opened the H1N1 vaccination program to the entire public this week as the second wave of flu cases in the state appears to be waning. Even with fewer cases being reported, the department still stated it is a good idea to be vaccinated, said Heather Weaver of the Custer District Health Unit.

This week, local public health units and private providers who have adequate H1N1 vaccine supplies may begin vaccinating anyone who wants the vaccine, according to Molly Sander, Immunization Program manager for the North Dakota DOH.
