When the Swine Flu vaccine becomes available late this fall, the Centers for Disease Control says the first groups who should receive it will include pregnant women, people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age, health care and emergency services personnel, persons between the ages of 6 months through 24 years of age, and people from ages 25 through 64 years who are at higher risk for novel H1N1 because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.

In the event the vaccine is initially available in limited quantities the following groups should receive the vaccine before others - pregnant women, people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age, health care and emergency services personnel with direct patient contact, children 6 months through 4 years of age, and children 5 through 18 years of age who have chronic medical conditions.

Medical officials are saying it's imperative these groups get vaccinated against swine flu.

The regular flu shot is also highly recommended.
