H1N1 Update 

(AP) The head of Maine’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention is praising the way Bowdoin College responded to an outbreak of swine flu that made 29 students sick. Dr. Dora Anne Mills says the Brunswick College “handled this very well.” In a Thursday briefing, the state health director said more outbreaks are expected in schools across the state now that students have returned to classes. Mills says state officials spent most of the summer preparing for these H1N1 outbreaks. Mills said about half of Maine’s schools have signed on so far to vaccination programs this fall. Some schools have balked because they hadn’t found approved places to store the vaccines. Mills said a special hotline’s been set up just to address that problem. She also said any school that needs a refrigerator or cooler will get one.
