More doses of the H1N1 flu vaccine are coming to parts the Washington area.

Virginia's Fairfax County is planning a mass vaccination clinic this Saturday at the County Government Center. It will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the county says it has the capacity to vaccinate up to 12,000 people. Still, due to limited supplies, the vaccine will be available only to people in priority groups including pregnant women, health care workers, those who live with or care for infants younger than six months, children between 6 months and 24 years old, and people with certain medical conditions that put them at higher risk.

Prince William County has scheduled clinics this week at the Manassas Mall from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, and Monday and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday. There's also a clinic from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at Gar-Field Senior High School and at various times at county health clinics in Woodbridge and Manassas. All are for people in priority groups.

Maryland's Montgomery County will have 5,000 doses of the vaccine, also for priority groups, this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Rockville campus of Montgomery College.
