The St. Paul Pioneer Press reported Wednesday that Ely Mayor Roger Skraba faces federal counts of entering the wilderness without a permit, possessing or using a motor vehicle in it, and removing property.
Two organizations representing department store Santas nationally asked that their members be vaccinated against H1N1 swine flu now because snotty-nosed, and possibly sick, kids breathe on them all day. But Kristen Ehresmann of the Minnesota Health Department said that is not going to happen.
The Health Department reported that more Minnesotans with flu-like illnesses went to the doctor last week and five H1N1-related deaths were confirmed, brining the state total to 26 since the outbreak began in April. Just nine schools reported H1N1 swine flu outbreaks last week, down from 40 two weeks ago, 137 three weeks ago and 288 four weeks ago.
David Butler-Jones said when the H1N1 vaccine becomes available in early November, Canadians will be immunized faster than people in other parts of the world. In some jurisdictions, such as Iqaluit, Nunavut, the population will be immunized within a matter of weeks, he said.
Minnesota and North Dakota’s first shipments of H1N1 influenza vaccine, due next week, will be targeted toward health providers on the front lines in treating flu victims. In North Dakota, state health officials also said Thursday that they expect the next batch of H1N1 vaccine to arrive in mid-October, and eventually expect to receive enough of the vaccine to meet demand. Similarly, Minnesota’s first 28,000 doses of swine flu vaccine are earmarked for health care workers.
North Dakota now has two confirmed cases of swine flu, one in Burleigh County and one in Ward County.
