OLYMPIA, Wash. —

Production problems have slowed the arrival of swine flu shots in Washington state. But state officials say pharmacies and doctor's offices will have enough shots to get all the primary groups started this week.

State Health Secretary Mary Selecky said at a Monday news conference with the governor that children, health care workers and pregnant women should be first in line for the H1N1 vaccine. By mid-November, there should be plenty of vaccine in Washington for everyone who wants the shot.

That's despite an expected 30 percent slowdown in the arrival of vaccine nationally. Selecky says the manufacturers have had some production problems and that's why the vaccine has been slower to arrive.
