CDC says 37 states now have widespread cases of H1N1

ATLANTA (WKOW) -- The spread of the H1N1 flu virus has apparently picked up, with widespread cases now reported in 37 states.

That's up from 27 states just last week, said officials with the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The figures suggest a leveling off of flu activity the previous week may have been short-lived.

States have ordered 3.6 million doses of swine flu vaccine for a campaign that started this week.  Doses of the nasal vaccine began arriving in Wisconsin this week.

More than 2,000 hospitals and clinics in Wisconsin registered to receive H1N1 vaccine, according to a state news release earlier this week.
