H1N1 Vaccine Clinics Postponed in VT

The Vermont Health Department says many of the H1N1 flu vaccination clinics that were set for next week have been postponed. They say its because like about 40 other states, Vermont now has widespread flu activity. WCAX TV reports that health officials say they don't really know how many people have the swine flu because most have not been tested. The department says of the thousands who are showing flu symptoms, more than 90 percent are believed to have swine flu. Despite that surge in numbers, health officials say they're staying calm. State Health Commissioner Wendy Davis says its not a crisis or an emergency. She says the state is under control and much of what health care workers are seeing was to be expected.
