State health officials say swine flu vaccine will be available next week at all county health clinics and in some schools.

However, the Mississippi's supply is limited and health officials are recommending only priority groups be the first to receive the vaccine at clinics.

Those priority groups are pregnant women, children age 6 months to 3 years, and infant caregivers.

The state has received 223,800 doses of the vaccine. State Epidemiologist Dr. Mary Currier says more is expected in coming weeks.

Currier says she didn't have a list of schools that will begin offering the vaccine. Parents will be sent consent forms.
