H1N1 Flu Still Present in Alaska

It’s not too late – or too early – to get protection from the H1N1 Swine Flu.
The disease is still present in the US, although Alaska has not seen a laboratory-confirmed case since early April.   Dr. Joe McLaughlin, the chief of the state’s epidemiology section, says you could still get it this summer, and it will likely be predominant running through the normal flu season beginning this fall.
