By Kelley Luckstein

NY Times, Swine Flu Plan Would Put Some Ahead for Vaccine, by Denise Grady, A panel of health experts laid out a plan on Wednesday for vaccinating certain people first in the likely event that not enough swine flu vaccine will be available to immunize every American in time for the expected surge of cases this fall and winter… “We don’t have a lot of experience with that in this country,” said Dr. Gregory Poland, an infectious disease specialist at the Mayo Clinic who participates in committee meetings but is not a voting member. “We have never taken something critical like a vaccine and said, ‘You can get it, and you can’t.’ ”

Post-Bulletin, When it comes to flu, state, local leaders plan for the worst, by Jeff Hansel, More than 100 local and Minnesota officials from diverse specialties met in Rochester to plan for the worst. Yet they're hoping for the best…Included at the event Friday were representatives from law enforcement, fire and emergency response, Olmsted Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, Federal Medical Center and Minnesota Department of Health.
