NEW YORK – Students at 125 New York City elementary schools are getting vaccinated against swine flu. It's the first phase of the city's drive to make the vaccine available to all school-age children.
The city's health commissioner, Dr. Thomas Farley, said there are 40,000 doses set aside for the first wave of schools.
School nurses at those sites will administer the nasal spray vaccine starting Wednesday to students whose parents have signed consent forms.
Officials do not yet know what percentage of parents citywide have signed the forms.
