Indiana To Recive H1N1 Flu Vaccines

Last updated on Wednesday, September 2, 2009

(UNDATED) - The state is counting on schools and businesses to help contain a potential pandemic of H1N1 flu.

Indiana expects to receive more than 800-thousand doses of flu vaccine next month, enough to immunize nearly everyone considered at highest risk: pregnant women, toddlers and school-age children, health workers, and people with chronic diseases.

The second wave of vaccine should cover everyone else who wants it.

Just over half of Americans have told pollsters they'll get the vaccine when it becomes available.
