Pa. Health Centers to Give Swine Flu Vaccine

Pennsylvanians can now make appointments at one of the 60 state health centers to be vaccinated against the swine flu virus.

The state Department of Health said Monday that the vaccine will be available to members of a priority group who can't get the vaccine through their doctor.

The vaccinations are being offered Tuesday through Thursday this week. Appointments can be made at the Web site, by looking under the ``What's Hot'' section. People who want the shots can also call 877-PA-HEALTH.

Priority groups include children as young as six months and young adults up to 24 years and caregivers for children younger than six months.

They also include pregnant women, health care providers, emergency medical services personnel and those under 65 years of age with certain underlying health conditions.
