Background:

While influenza activity in Minnesota has declined in recent weeks, there is still the potential for a third wave of illnesses to occur between now and late April, caused either by H1N1 or seasonal influenza viruses. At the same time, vaccine supply is increasing, presenting Minnesotans with a window of opportunity to protect themselves and others through vaccination. Commissioner Magnan wants to let Minnesotans know that now is a good time to get vaccinated and there is plenty of vaccine available for everyone.
