Vermont flu cases on the rise

Vermont Health Department officials say the number of flu cases in the state is increasing. Health Commissioner Dr. Wendy Davis says 11 cases have been confirmed in southwestern Vermont, with eight of those cases confirmed as the H1N1 swine flu. Davis says some seasonal flu vaccine clinics have been postponed because of a shortage of vaccine. The swine flu vaccine is due to arrive soon.
