The Department of Health expects an upswing in seasonal and H1N1 flu cases this fall, and D.C. is no exception.

D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty traveled to Mary's Center for Maternal and Child Care to announce the District's H1N1 preparation plan.

The plan includes working with hospitals, private providers, educational institutions and community health clinics like Mary's Center, to start distributing an H1N1 vaccine in mid-October.

Fenty says the vaccine will be made available to high-priority groups before it's made available to the general population. Priority groups include pregnant women, caretakers of children and people with medical conditions such as diabetes or asthma.
