U.S. troops will get H1N1 flu vaccine


WASHINGTON-- U.S. troops will be getting required H1N1 vaccine shots in the next week.

A military commander says active duty forces who are deploying are at the front of the vaccine line.

The Pentagon bought one-point-4 million vaccines for those men and women.

National Guard troops on active duty are also required to get the vaccine.

Air Force officials say as many as 4-hundred troops are ready to go to five headquarters around the country to help federal health officials if needed as the flu season continues.
