But now, H1N1 is the main target with a couple of other strains as secondary flus that are hanging around. State health department spokesman Kit Wagar says H1N1 has become just another seasonal flu although it was pretty scary a year ago.
Wagar says the H1N1 was not as serious as feared last year because of intensive efforts to fight it and because of a “certain amount” of luck. It hit only briefly and did not return in January as some thought it might. This year’s flu vaccine is being made now and will be shipped in a little more than a month. Adair county officials announced Friday that the annual “Drive Thru” flu clinic are tentatively set for September 9th at the fairgrounds.
