Louisville plans mass flu clinic

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville officials have scheduled a
mass vaccination clinic after the deaths of two more city residents
from swine flu.

The effort will be conducted Nov. 11-12 in several parking lots
of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium and officials hope to inoculate
thousands of the most vulnerable people who live in Louisville.

The Courier-Journal reported health officials decided to hold
the clinic after receiving enough doses of the vaccine for large
numbers of residents.

The city has 15,000 doses on hand - about 70 percent for
injections and the other 30 percent as nasal mist.

Mayor Jerry Abramson said officials expect to get more vaccine
later and will schedule more clinics.

Health officials said Wednesday that 18 people have died of
swine flu statewide.
