DALLAS (AP) - More than a month after the swine flu vaccine
began arriving in Texas, the doses are still arriving in fairly
piecemeal fashion.

That's left many frustrated doctors who can't tell their
patients exactly when it will arrive.

Some doctors say they've been getting enough to address their
high-risk groups; others say they have gotten no doses at all yet.

Spokeswoman Carrie Williams of the Texas Department of State
Health Services says that for now, the state is focusing on getting
the vaccine to hospitals, private practices and local health
departments.

She says that state has been allocated 3 million doses as of the
end of last week, with the highest numbers going to hospitals.
