Priority groups expanded for H1N1 shot

Email

WILLMAR -- Vaccine availability for H1N1 novel influenza is being expanded to all health priority groups, the Minnesota Department of Health announced Tuesday.

The supply is still trickling in and it will take time to get the vaccine distributed to health providers and public health agencies across the state, officials said.

Be persistent, counseled Kris Ehresmann, director of the infectious disease division at the state Health Department.
