Flu Update North Dakota

The stats are out for this week on the flu. Total cases 23. H1N1- 10, Type A H3- 1, Type A unspec. - 10, Type B - 2. Bowman 2, Burleigh 1, Cass 8, Grand Forkes 3, McLean 1, Morton - 1, Pembina- 1, Richland - 1, Rolette - 1, Stark - 1, and Ward - 2. So remember get your regular flu shot and when the H1N1 becomes available get it. There are priorities as to who gets first "shot" at the H1N1 shot. Pregnant women, kids 6 months to 24 years, people caring for children younger than 6 months, health care workers and emergency personel, and 25-64 year olds with chronic health conditions and immune deficiencies such asthma or COPD, Diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, organ transplants, etc. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, and good hand washing are key. Stay safe and healthy.
