WHITEHORSE-Yukon's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Brendan Hanley, would like to remind Yukoners with asthma or lung or heart conditions to take special care as smoke from the large forest fire in southern Alaska blankets parts of Yukon.

Smoke from forest fires can often cause minor symptoms such as a runny nose and itchy eyes, irritated throat and sinuses, headaches or coughing. Individuals with asthma or chronic conditions can have more serious reactions.

Any Whitehorse residents planning to get the annual flu vaccine this year are out of luck, for now.
Dr. Brendan Hanley, the Yukon's chief medical officer of health, announced Friday afternoon that flu clinics in the capital are closed until further notice after running out of the vaccine.
While the numbers still have to be tallied, Hanley estimates about 9,000 vaccines have been provided in the territory this season.
With the information system for the flu vaccine down for a short period last week, Hanley said, exact figures are still being calculated.
"As predicted, Whitehorse has run out of vaccine, if a little sooner than anticipated," Hanley said in a statement.
"This means that Yukoners have stepped forward to achieve an unprecedented rate of immunization against seasonal influenza. In turn, we will see better protection for those who can't, won't or are unable to obtain vaccination for now."
This morning, Hanley said a total of 8,400 vaccines were ordered for the territory, along with 600 flu mists. A further 200 mists arrived in the territory last week.
In the communities outside Whitehorse, health centres are operating as usual. They have some vaccines available after already sending Whitehorse "all the doses they could spare."
As Hanley noted, vaccine doses for each jurisdiction are ordered based on the number of people who received the vaccine in previous years.
...
Hanley said "kudos" to the staff working at the clinic who kept wait times as short as possible and ran things efficiently.
Despite the high demand for the vaccine, long waiting times and a few who were turned away, Hanley said there didn't seem to be any sense of panic among those at Friday's clinics.
Perhaps next year, he said, people will consider getting vaccinated earlier in the season.
An estimated 400 came through the health centre for the vaccine on Friday.
Another flu clinic was held at the Kwanlin Dun Health Centre, but numbers for that clinic have not come through yet.
Hanley acknowledged those who were planning to get the vaccine and now may be frustrated.
"We are working with Public Health Agency of Canada to obtain more doses, but so is every other jurisdiction in Canada," Hanley said
...
While some jurisdictions such as the Northwest Territories and Saskatchewan are providing the vaccine on a priority basis, Hanley said that hasn't, and isn't likely to happen in the Yukon.
In many cases, he said, the flu is affecting younger and middle-aged adults with underlying medical conditions and in prioritizing people, there could be some who would be missed.
He also noted that the vaccine has been available in the territory since October 2013, so many have already been vaccinated who may have medical conditions or other specific reasons for getting the vaccine.
As residents wait for more vaccines and the next flu clinic, he said, people can take comfort in the high rate of immunization in Whitehorse as well as the fact that anyone who received a flu shot since 2009 or who had H1N1 influenza previously will be "at least partially protected,"
Hanley is also reminding Yukoners they can also protect themselves with "good health practices."
...
Three people have been hospitalized with the flu, though Hanley said he could not provide details on those cases.
