Tennessee and Indiana Get Vaccine

Memphis, TN – Indiana and Tennessee are among the first states that will vaccinate people against the swine flu. Health officials in both states have events scheduled for today in Indianapolis and Memphis to administer nasal mist doses of the swine flu vaccine to doctors, nurses, emergency medical workers, and other health care professionals. The vaccine is being given to workers at LeBonheur Children's Medical Center in Memphis. Initial shipments of the nasal mist vaccine are so small that in most cases they're being reserved for health workers. Each of the sites has received about 100 doses.
