Play associated audio

Maryland's Governor, Martin O'Malley, is expected to give an update on the state's swine flu preparations today. The state is working on a plan to offer the swine flu vaccine to any resident who wants it. O'Malley will give more details this afternoon, when he visits Prince George's County Community College. The plan is dependent on widespread availability of the vaccine, which is now being studied in a series of clinical trials.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said Friday that volunteers did not report serious side effects in the first trial. About 50 million doses of the vaccine could be available to the public by mid-October. O'Malley will also talk about new bio-surveillance efforts in Maryland this afternoon.
