GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The state Health Department says North

Dakota has its second flu death.

Influenza surveillance coordinator Michelle Feist (FYST) says

the victim was a woman older than 60 in the northwestern part of

the state who had an underlying medical condition.

The department has now confirmed 3,139 influenza cases in North

Dakota, up 184 over the past week.

Feist says the state continues to see weekly shipments of swine

flu vaccine, but it could be January before immunization clinics

target the general population.
