Mexico City offers swine flu vaccines at subways

Mexico City has started giving swine flu vaccinations at subway stations in an effort to reach more people.
City Health Secretary Armando Ahued says the campaign has begun at the 26 busiest stations and will be extended to markets by the end of the week.
He spoke to reporters Tuesday. Mexico City has 300,000 vaccine doses and administered 10,200 at subway stops Monday.
Mexico was the epicenter of last year's swine flu outbreak. At least 69,535 people have been sickened, including 931 who died. Mexico City has had the most cases with 7,929.
The government has received less than half of the 30 million vaccines doses it ordered. Still, officials hope to vaccinate 24 million of the country's more than 105 million people by March.
