Though there are reports around the country that the H1N1 flu vaccine has arrived, none of it had reached the Wallowa County Health Department as of Tuesday, Oct. 6.

"The Oregon Health Department is supposed to let us know when they ship it," administrative assistant Jody Beck said. "We don't have any here yet, but it should be anytime."

The swine flu vaccine will cost $15 at the county health department.

Priority targeted groups will be eligible to receive vaccines from the initial first shipment, which is expected to be mainly the nasal form.
