Nova Scotia continued to see a steady decrease in H1N1 activity across the province last week.

The Department of Health Promotion and Protection reported Wednes­day there were no new hospitalizations due to H1N1 and no new lab-confirmed cases of the virus reported between Dec. 13 and 19.

As of Saturday, the province had distributed enough vaccine to immunize 63 per cent of the population, or about 590,000 people. In anticipation of a possible third wave of the H1N1 pandemic in the new year, officials are still encouraging people to get vaccinated if they haven’t already done so.
