Play associated audio

Three H1N1 flu vaccine clinics are scheduled tomorrow in Maryland's Montgomery County. The nasal spray vaccine will be offered to children between the ages of 2 and 24, but can't be given to pregnant women, children under two, or those with chronic conditions like asthma or diabetes.

The county says it's ordered more injectable vaccine but doesn't have it yet. The clinics will be open from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Northwood High School, Northwest High School, and Rockville High School.

In Virginia, Fairfax County is offering the vaccine now at five county health offices, but only to pregnant women, children between two and five years of age, and parents of children under six months old. They'll serve 250 people each day until the supply is exhausted.

The District holds the latest in its series of clinics for youth and pregnant women from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight at Eliot-Hine Middle School and Kelly Miller Middle School, both in NE Washington.
