NIAMEY, Niger (AP) —Armed loyalists of MoammarGadhafi crossed in severalconvoys from Libya intoneighboring Niger and thetoppled Libyan leader’s ownsecurity chief was at the headof one of the columns todayas it rolled into Niamey, thecapital, officials said.Customs official HarounaIde told The Associated Pressthat Mansour Dao, Gadhafi’ssecurity chief, was at the headof the first convoy. He saidother Libyan convoys weresouth of Agadez in cen-tral Niger, a desert countrybordering Libya and whereGadhafi has the support of many Tuareg tribal fighters.It wasn’t clear if Gadhafifamily members were in theconvoys but al-Arabiya televi-sion quoted Niger’s ForeignMinister Bazoum Mohamedas saying Gadhafi himself wasnot present.The custom official saidthere were a dozen vehiclesin Dao’s convoy, and thatamong passengers were about12 Gadhafi officials, Niger’sTuareg rebel leader Rissa agBoula and other Tuaregs fromNiger who had gone to Libyato fight for Gadhafi.Abdoulaye Harouna, ownerof the Agadez Info newspaper,said he saw one of the groupsarrive in his town Monday inseveral dozen pickup trucks. Hesaid they headed for the capi-tal, Niamey, a drive of some600 miles (965 kilometers). Thecapital is in Niger’s southwest-ern corner near the nation of Burkina Faso, where Gadhafihas been offered asylum.Harouna said he sawBoula in the convoy. Boulais a native of Niger who leda failed war of independenceon behalf of ethnic Tuaregnomads a decade ago beforeseeking refuge in Libya.The government of BurkinaFaso said late last month theywould recognize the Libyanrebels’ National TransitionalCouncil. Foreign ministerDjibril Bassolet also saidthe landlocked West Africannation would welcomeGadhafi “if he wishes it.”A top security official inBurkina Faso said govern-ment officials have not beenadvised about any convoyheaded for Burkina Faso. Theofficial asked not to be namedbecause he’s not authorized tospeak to journalists.Both Niger and BurkinaFaso are signatories to theInternational Criminal Court,which issued an arrest warrantfor the Libyan leader, his sonand the country’s intelligencechief. But both nations alsobelong to the African Union,which during a July summitcalled on member countries todisregard the warrant.Western officials said theydid not have any informa-tion on the convoy. Harounasays the pro-Gadhafi troopsaccompanying Boula werewell-armed.French Foreign Ministryspokesman Bernard Valerosaid the ministry did not knowwho was in the vehicles.“We have no more infor-mation than you do,” he tolda reporter. “We are monitor-ing the movement of thesevehicles, and we will see.”Gadhafi’s regime isbelieved to have financed theTuareg rebellion in the northof Niger. African nationswhere Tuaregs represent a sig-nificant slice of the population,like Niger, have been amongthe last to recognize the rebelsthat ousted Gadhafi.Gadhafi remains especiallypopular in towns like Agadez,a Sahara Desert market townwhere a majority of the popu-lation is Tuareg. There, theex-ruler is remembered for hislargesse and for his assistanceto the Tuareg minority duringtheir fight for autonomy.

year’s vaccination — it’sthe only way to be sure yourimmune system remains revvedenough for the best protection.“You’re not going to beable to count on that vaccineprotecting you throughout asecond season,” says Dr. LisaGrohskopf of the Centersfor Disease Control andPrevention.A yearly vaccination nowis recommended for virtu-ally everyone, except babiesyounger than 6 months andpeople with severe allergies tothe eggs used to make it. Lastyear, 49 percent of childrenand 41 percent of adults werevaccinated.Say you never catch theflu? You could be a carrier,unknowingly spreading themisery when you feel lit-tle more than a sniffle, saysDr. William Schaffner of Vanderbilt University, presi-dent of the National Foundationfor Infectious Diseases.“You should be vaccinatedeach and every year to ensureboth you’re protected andyou’re giving the maximumprotection to people aroundyou,” he says.Here are some questionsand answers about flu vaccina-tions:Q: How does the new skin-deep vaccine work?A: Sanofi Pasteur’s FluzoneIntradermal uses a needle lessthan a tenth of an inch longto inject vaccine just belowthe skin’s surface. This layer,called the dermis, is so rich in acertain type of immune cell thatthe new shot uses a lower doseof the same vaccine that’s inregular flu shots. Studies foundit triggered as much protectionas full-strength muscle shots —although it did cause more skinreactions like redness, swellingand itching. There’s little dataon pain perception.But it’s only for 18- to64-year-olds. It hasn’t beenstudied in children’s more-tender skin. Sanofi estimatesit will sell less than 1 milliondoses this year while introduc-ing the newly approved productto doctors, before a full marketlaunch next flu season.Q: What about the originalouchless flu vaccine, the nasal-spray version?A: MedImmune’s FluMistis for a different age group,people ages 2 to 49 who arehealthy, meaning no one withunderlying health conditions orwho is pregnant. Unlike flushots that are made with killedflu virus, FluMist is made withlive but weakened virus.Q: For older adults, doesCDC recommend the high-dose shot?A: The immune systemweakens with age so that itdoesn’t respond as well toan ordinary flu shot. Sanofi’sFluzone High-Dose is a stan-dard into-the-muscle shotbut it contains four timesthe usual dose, to spur moreimmune response in people65 and older. First sold lastyear, studies still are underway to track if that trans-lates into fewer illnesses andhospitalizations. It can causemore of the typical flu-shotside effects. The CDC saysit’s OK for seniors to chooseeither a high-dose shot or theregular shots from a varietyof manufacturers.Q: Who’s at highest riskfrom the flu?A: Young children, anyone50 or older, anyone with chron-ic medical conditions such asasthma and certain heart orkidney problems, and pregnantwomen. A flu vaccination dur-ing pregnancy has the addedbenefit of passing some protec-tion to the baby.Q: When should I get vac-cinated?A: Anytime, but it takesabout two weeks for protectionto kick in. Flu typically startscirculating around November,and peaks around January.Some chain pharmacies startedvaccinating a month ago. Nextmonth, Hawaii begins offeringfree in-school vaccinations forelementary and middle schoolstudents.
