The Department of Public Health in the Northern Marianas has assured that all three islands will have a sufficient supply of the H1N1 vaccines, enough to meet the demand.

The Commonwealth Health Center Medical Director, Dr Richard Brostrom, says the department expects the next vaccine shipment to arrive in early December.

Dr Brostrom says the CNMI expects to have 56,000 doses available for Saipan, Rota, and Tinian.

Students are already being vaccinated under the Head Start programme.
