Swine Flu Vaccine


Tulsa, OK – Mass swine flu vaccinations planned in state

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Health officials are planning mass immunization clinics across Oklahoma to provide swine flu vaccinations to those at high risk.

The clinics Saturday are for those considered most vulnerable for the H1N1 virus. Those include people 6 months to 18-years-old, pregnant women, adults younger than 65 with chronic medical conditions, health care workers who treat seriously ill patients and custodial parents of infants younger than 6 months.

The clinics come as the state confirms three more swine flu-related deaths. The latest victims include a Muskogee County boy, an Oklahoma County woman and a Cleveland County woman.
