Health Department Says More Vaccines Are Coming

The Virginia Health Department is stressing patience if you're waiting on H1N1 vaccinations for your children. Shipments of the vaccine have been delayed.

However, kids are a high priority group and school clinics will be set up first.

State health officials say parents should take advantage of a school clinic if there's one in their area.

"We have some schools where 80 percent of parents ask their children be vaccinated, and we have some schools where 30 percent ask to be vaccinated. Certainly I think that people have worried that there wouldn't be enough vaccine, but we know we will have plenty of vaccine over the next coming months to have a good vaccination program," says State Health Commissioner Dr. Karen Remley.

Remley expects there will be enough vaccine available by mid-November to allow members of the general population to get it.
