TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Health officials say more than a
million Floridians have received swine flu vaccinations and limits
on who can get them are being lifted.
Florida Department of Health spokesman Doc Kokol said Thursday
that everyone now should make plans to get shots or the nasal spray
The H1N1 vaccine initially had been restricted to those most
vulnerable, including children. The federal government now says
those limits no longer are needed because the national supply has
reached 111 million doses.
Swine flu has killed 186 people in Florida including two in the
past week. The flu season usually doesn't peak in Florida until
February and officials are worried another wave of swine flu may
hit the state later next year.
