1 Swine Flu Shot Enough for Older Kids
Date:9/21/2009

0 years of age will need four shots -- two seasonal flu shots and two H1N1 flu shots. Older children and adults will need just two shots -- one for seasonal flu and one for H1N1 flu.

"Overall, this is very good news for the vaccination program, both in regards to the supply of vaccine as well as to its potential efficacy," Fauci said.

Children, pregnant women, and people with chronic health conditions -- such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease -- are among those at greatest risk for complications from the H1N1 swine flu, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There may also be some injectable H1N1 flu vaccine available in early October, but how much is not known yet, officials said.

Jernigan said it's important to get an H1N1 flu shot when the vaccine becomes available. People should also get a seasonal flu shot -- which is available now -- because the seasonal flu will start t
