Just over one million doses of the H1N1 vaccine are being allocated to sites in Virginia in the state's effort to vaccinate people against the swine flu.

Virginia health commissioner Dr. Karen Remley says while influenza-related illness has gone down to five percent of visits to emergency rooms, there are many who are ill, and that 27 deaths have now been reported around the commonwealth.

Shipments of the vaccine went out this week to colleges and universities, including the University of Virginia, which held a vaccination clinic Thursday. Remley says influenza cases reported this fall are typically H1N1. Remley says samples taken from patients have not detected the seasonal flu virus yet.
