Health officials expect 125,000 doses to fight flu

The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department anticipates receiving swine flu vaccine doses for 125,000 people.

The vaccine for the H1N1 flu is expected to be available in October at the earliest, said Larry Vasko, deputy health commissioner.

The vaccine would first be administered to health care and emergency personnel and pregnant women.

It would next be available to the 88,000 students in the county, Mr. Vasko said. Vaccines would be voluntary, not mandatory.
