U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan greet some of the nurses giving out H1N1 vaccinations.

Students at one Prince Georges County elementary school received H1N1 flu vaccinations as members of President Obama's cabinet looked on.

Around 100 students received their vaccine, through a nasal spray put into each nostril, at Dodge Park Elementary in Landover, Maryland. Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius was there to lend support and to try to calm fears from parents.

Other schools in Prince Georges County will start vaccinating later this month. Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley says school children are one of five priority populations getting the vaccine first. Dr. Donald Shell, the chief health officer for Prince Georges County, says they followed federal guidelines in determining who received the first vaccines.
