11 Percent of Population Get ’Flu Inoculation
• Second Round Will Focus on Pandemic H1N1 Strain
Local health workers have been inoculating people in Hughenden and Provost this month in a bid to ward off three kinds of seasonal influenza strains expected to hit here this fall and winter.

A fourth influenza called Pandemic H1N1 is expected to hit this ’flu season as well.

There are two kinds of influenza with similar names this season: the “A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1)” which is one of the three seasonal influenzas expected and the “Pandemic H1N1” that is expected to be more prevalent later.

The anticipated strain of the Pandemic H1N1 (sometimes called swine flu) is to be met with a different vaccine when it becomes available here.

“Each day we are getting updated information” from Alberta Health Services (AHS) regarding vaccinations, says public health nurse Shirlianne Neufeld.

AHS is monitoring the situation and will tell public health officials across the province how to proceed in the coming weeks.

Those who have already been inoculated for the seasonal “A/Brisbane/59/2007 (H1N1)” along with the “A/Brisbane/10/2007 (H3N2)” and “B/Brisbane/60-2008” are also being encouraged to have an immunization needle to deal with the expected and different “Pandemic H1N1” strain. That vaccine is expected in Provost and Hughenden in early November.
