Mild H1N1 outbreak reported at Maui school

Advertiser Staff

The state Department of Health said today that there was a recent mild outbreak of H1N1 flu at school on Maui.

The agency said a number of students at the school either had not been vaccinated or had not received the recommended two doses for children under 10.

"Fortunately, this incident was short-lived and seems to have run its course," Marc Nishimoto, of the Maui District Health Office, said in a statement.

"It's a reminder to parents about the continued need to get their children vaccinated."

For information on getting the H1N1 vaccine, call 211 or your doctor.
