West Virginia will soon be receiving its' first batch of swine flu vaccine.

The vaccine will first be administered to hospitals and health care workers to ensure continued treatment for people who fall sick with swine flu this fall.

Only 10,000 doses of nasal vaccine are expected to arrive next week.

More manufacturers are being approved to produce the vaccine, making it more widely available.

The state has stopped counting the number of reported swine flu cases and is instead preparing to follow hospitalizations and deaths from flu-like symptoms.

The Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department last reported one case in Calhoun.
