Minnesota Health Dept. makes H1N1 vaccination available for all residents


ST. PAUL -- Minnesota health officials plan to allow most people to receive H1N1 flu vaccinations.

If health care providers have enough vaccine for priority groups such as young people, beginning Wednesday they may give shots or nasal mists to anyone, the Health Department announced Monday.

H1N1 flu vaccine has been in such short supply that state officials limited those who could receive them to those most likely to catch the flu.
