RI Leads Nation in H1N1 Vaccinations

ATLANTA (AP) - Rhode Island leads the nation in swine flu vaccinations, thanks to an aggressive campaign.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says 39 percent of people in the state were inoculated. Among children the rate was about 85 percent.

New England is the top region in the country for vaccinations, while the South has the lowest rates.

One CDC expert says the flu hit the Southeast before the vaccine was available. But there was an ample supply when the demand was high in New England.
