Islanders who haven’t yet received the swine flu vaccine will get another opportunity soon, says Northern Health communications director Steve Raper. Mr. Raper said Northern Health is preparing to send more vaccine and nurses to Haida Gwaii, and details about clinic times and places will be posted on the Northern Health website as soon as they are finalized. About 60 to 70 percent of islanders got their swine flu shot in clinics offered here between late October and mid-November, Northern Health estimates. The vaccine is free.
