    SPOKANE, Wash. - Swine Flu is now likely to blame for a massive spike in student absences across the Pacific Northwest. One of the hardest hit schools is East Valley Middle School where officials have canceled all after school programs in an effort to combat the spread of the virus. >>
SPOKANE, Wash. - During Monday's call center for H1N1 appointments, the Spokane Regional Health District will only be able to schedule appointments for people who are approved for the nasal spray version of the H1N1 vaccine and who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) criteria for prioritized vaccination.  

Those who can make an appointment include:  
  • Healthy people ages 2-24
  • Healthy adults up to age 49 who are healthcare workers
  • Healthy people up to age 49 who care for an infant under the age of 6 months old
This development is based on the Health District having only received the nasal spray vaccine.

There has been no confirmation of an arrival date for the H1N1 flu shots, which are suitable for a much wider range of people.  

When the injectable version of the vaccine arrives the Health District will schedule a call-in appointment date for others who are in the prioritized groups.
