As of Wednesday, four people were asking the council to pick them to sit in the seat until August's special election: David Cisco, who lost the seat to resigning Councilman Danny Ellis in 2007; Mary Overstreet, a Mary Kay Beauty consultant; Randall Roby, who works for the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department and has Ellis' backing; and Craig Steinfels, a former Republican 8th District congressional candidate who dropped out of the race last year because of a conflict with his job at Black and Decker.

"[We have not received] even enough to begin vaccinating our health department staff, much less do any kind of public vaccination," said Randall Roby of the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department.

Roby said those on the front lines combating the virus, like health care professionals, are first in line for the vaccinations. Currently the only vaccine in the area for the H1N1 strain is administered in a nasal spray, according to Roby.
Roby, the department's Emergency Response Director, said not everyone is eligible for this form of the vaccination. Even some of those considered most at-risk cannot receive the nasal inoculation. "Our number one priority group to become vaccinated are pregnant women and they can't take the nasal spray," Roby said.
Pregnant women are restricted from taking the nasal spray because the spray uses a live strain of the virus. The traditional shots use a dead strain. Roby said the live strain can compromise a weakened immune system, such as that of a pregnant woman.
Roby added other segments of the population are at the same risk. "If you are over the age of 49, if you have asthma, chronic health conditions like that then you can't take the nasal spray," Roby advised.
The nasal spray will be available to the public in the coming weeks as more shipments are received. "We're looking at small shipments showing up over the weeks and once we get enough in place that we feel like we have enough doses to open a clinic, then we'll start doing a flu clinic," Roby said.
Roby stressed no matter what form of the vaccine you might receive, each is safe. "This vaccine is manufactured using the exact same processes that seasonal influenza vaccine has been manufactured for a number of years," Roby said.

Randall Roby, a spokesman for the Jackson-Madison County Emergency Management Agency, said the storm hit everything in his county north of Interstate 40, but no deaths or serious injuries were reported.

He said the dorm at Union University sustained severe structural damage, leaving students on Sunday finding temporary shelter with friends, relatives or at area hotels.
"The way the damage was laid out, it looks like there were several" tornadoes, he said.
