Texas getting at least 2 million swine flu doses

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas has been allocated about 2 million swine flu vaccine doses from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The Texas Department of State Health Services on Friday said the agency continues to order the state's full allocation of the H1N1 vaccine as quickly as possible.

More than 1.5 million doses of the 2 million had been ordered as of Thursday.

DSHS says about 12,000 Texas providers have registered to receive the vaccine. More orders and shipments will proceed as doctors and clinics confirm their requests with DSHS.
