    Health District: Three deaths linked to H1N1

    SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Regional Health District reported Thursday that three Spokane County residents have died from complications linked to Influenza A. As H1N1 influenza is the only influenza in current circulation, it is likely the H1N1 virus. The three deaths include one man and two women and only of the people had underlying health conditions. "Every death from influenza is tragic and a reminder of how this virus can have very serious consequences," said Dr. Joel McCullough. >>

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Regional Health District has started directing shipments of the H1N1 vaccine for delivery to area healthcare locations.

First to receive the incoming vaccine were area hospitals in order to begin vaccinating their healthcare workers and high-risk patients. Some area pediatricians have also received vaccine, although in amounts much smaller than they had ordered.

The vaccine shipments are happening in lower quantities and along a slower timeline than originally planned and because of this, providers who receive the vaccine will use it for those patients and staff who meet the CDC's prioritization for early vaccination.

"Although we certainly wish we had more vaccine now, each week additional shipments of vaccine should arrive and be delivered to more and more places in the community," said Dr. Joel McCullough, Health Officer for the Spokane Regional Health District. "Until people are vaccinated, we must count on other prevention activities to help slow the spread of this virus." 

Over the next month, the Health District is planning more than a dozen community vaccination clinics and many area medical providers will be offering the vaccine to their patients who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) criteria for prioritized vaccination.
