FREDERICTON (CNB) - Another 108,000 doses of H1N1 vaccine are scheduled to arrive in New Brunswick next week. This is twice the amount originally expected, and ends the temporary shortfall in vaccine supply. The Public Health Agency of Canada informed the Department of Health of the increase today.

Clinics will be continuing through November and December. Each New Brunswick resident wishing to receive the vaccine will have the opportunity to do so.

The most up-to-date list of H1N1 immunization clinics may be found at www.gnb.ca/flu or by calling 1-800-580-0038. Print media are asked not to print clinic lists, since clinic information is subject to change. Local radio stations are strongly encouraged to share clinic listings for their listeners directly from www.gnb.ca/flu.

The next report will be issued on Tuesday, Nov. 24.
