H1N1 virus.

Virginia has joined D.C. and Maryland in opening the door for anyone who wants it to get immunized against swine flu. Dr. Karen Remley, the state's health commissioner, says an additional 700,000 doses of vaccine are on their way to Virginia. That brings the total number of H1N1 doses made available across the state this flu season to more than three million.

Remley says people can arrange to receive vaccines through any one of more than 3,000 physician offices, pharmacies, clinics, big box stores and health departments that are registered vaccinators.

The flu continues to be widespread across much of Virginia. Health departments in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia say metropolitan residents can go across city and state lines to get vaccinated.
