A spokeswoman for the Mississippi Department of Health says the state has received 60,000 dosages of injectable swine flu vaccine.
Liz Sharlot says the state has another 69,000 dosages of the nasal spray. She says the numbers change daily, but about 900 providers have signed up to administer the vaccine.
Dosages have been shipped to pediatricians and others who see patients in priority groups including pregnant women, young children and those with respiratory illnesses.
Sharlot said it could be awhile before mass vaccinations at schools begin.
The state health agency reports 1,143 cases of H1N1 flu and eight deaths.
