More Merced County residents will soon be eligible to receive the H1N1 flu vaccine. The lines for Friday's vaccination clinic at the health department in Merced were relatively short.Health officials say they've vaccinated more than three thousand people in the past two weeks who were considered to be at high risk for the illness.

Now the county is going to expand the clinics to include all children and young adults ages six months to 24 years old ... as well as people ages 25 to 64 who have chronic medical conditions ... and all health workers.

Health officials say many local providers in Merced County now have the H1N1 vaccine for the first time, so residents can also contact their doctors.
