A girl has died in Austria of swine flu, becoming the country's first recorded fatality.
The Austria Press Agency reports the 11-year-old from Italy's German-speaking South Tyrol region died Monday in a hospital in the western city of Innsbruck. She had been in intensive care for days.
Austrian Health Minister Alois Stoeger expressed his condolences to the girl's family and stressed that the Alpine republic was well prepared to deal with the disease.
Last week, Austrian health authorities kicked off a voluntary, countrywide H1N1 vaccination campaign for health care professionals and others working in the medical field.
The public will have access to shots _ with priority given to pregnant women and other high-risk groups_ beginning Nov. 9.
