As the first shipment of swine flu vaccine began arriving in Wisconsin this week, UW-Madison officials are anxious to receive them. Doctor Sarah Van Orman, Executive Director of University Health Services, says they have designated 32,000 people within the targeted group. This includes students under the age of 25, people who have underlying high risk medical conditions, pregnant women and health care workers. Orman says UHS plans on inoculating about 20,000 students which is around 60-to-70 percent of the student body. She believes the will have enough H1N1 vaccines for the task.
