In the past week 11 more kids have fallen victim to the swine flu. The CDC says many deaths are among children and teenagers. The numbers are surprising, because earlier people thought toddlers and preschoolers would be most at risk. Now it seems teens in high school and college are the ones affected. Currently the government is ready to ship nearly 10 million doses of the vaccination. Clinics are also worried, because vaccinations for the regular winter flu haven’t been arriving fast enough.
