Oklahoma to receive more of H1N1 vaccine

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Department of Health is announcing the Sooner State will be receiving more than 65,000 additional doses of the H1N1 vaccine.

The Carter County Health department received its first round of H1N1 shots earlier this week. Now state health officials are confirming an additional 65,900 doses - both in nasal spray and shot form of the vaccine - will be arriving in Oklahoma next week.

The vaccine will be made available through clinics put on by local county health departments, and officials say right now they will continue to focus on school-aged children, pregnant women, and health care workers.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health says they expect to receive weekly H1N1 vaccine shipments through early January 2010.
