Doyle says he won't get H1N1 vaccine himself

MADISON (WKOW) -- Add Governor Jim Doyle to the list of people who did not get vaccinated for the H1N1 flu.

Doyle said he hasn't gotten it because he's not in the target group of high-risk people health officials are urging to be vaccinated. Those include pregnant women and young children.

Doyle says he wishes the vaccine could be distributed more quickly, but he believes everyone is working as hard as they can to make that happen.

The state Department of Health Services reported Friday that so far Wisconsin has been allocated nearly 700,000 doses of vaccine and has received and distributed about 500,000.

Dane County Public Health tightened restrictions for who could get vaccinated because of the national shortage.
