H1N1 Flu Claims Another Mainers Life 

The state of Maine has seen its third swine flu death, and the disease is continuing to wreak havoc in schools with 65 outbreaks. Dr. Dora Anne Mills from the Maine Center for Disease Control said Thursday that the latest death was of an adult in Penobscot County who had a serious underlying medical condition. Mills also says some schools are reporting absenteeism of nearly 50 percent, and schools were closed altogether in Jonesboro and Winthrop. She says the good news is that 95 percent of Maine’s public schools have completed their vaccination clinics, and more swine flu vaccine is making its way into the state. As of Tuesday, Maine had received 180,400 doses, up by 42,000 last week.
