Health Officials Push For H1N1 Vaccinations After Increase in Georgia Cases

ATLANTA (AP) - Health officials are renewing their push for
Americans to get swine flu shots because of an uptick in hospital
cases in Georgia.

No other state has seen such an increase in hospitalizations,
and overall, swine flu illnesses and deaths have been down for
months.

But Georgia in the past two weeks has seen its most swine flu
hospitalizations since September.

Officials on Monday said most of the cases were unvaccinated
adults, and many had pre-existing conditions that made them more
susceptible to swine flu.
