Virginia Governor Tim Kaine says by the middle of November, everyone in Virginia who wants to get an H1N1 vaccination will be eligible to do so.

Kaine says by the middle of November, everyone in Virginia who wants to get an H1N1 vaccination will be eligible to do so.

But until then, the H1N1 vaccine will only go to people in priority groups: health care workers, pregnant women and people younger than age 24. The department of health had to cancel nearly a dozen immunization clinics in Northern Virginia after supplies of the vaccine fell short of predictions.

Kaine says more doses of the vaccine will arrive soon, "but I would just encourage everyone to wait your turn. Let's go ahead and vaccinate the high-priority groups that really have a need for it."

So far, Virginia has received approximately 265,000 doses. Only California and New York have received more.
