Topeka, KS -- With 154 cases of the swine flu confirmed in Kansas and the H1N1 virus only expected to get worse over the fall, the nation is looking to develop and start testing a vaccine against the swine flu.
After it’s developed, KDHE would receive it and start distributing it in October.
On Thursday, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told all 50 states to come up with a plan.
Health officials recommend individuals get vaccinated against both the swine flu and the H1N1 virus.
