ANCHORAGE - With the flu season's peak coming up in February and March, public health officials are urging people to get vaccinated.
A swine flu vaccine clinic was held Tuesday at the U.S. Cross Country Championships in Anchorage, allowing racers, coaches and spectators to get their shots. Olympic biathlete Rachel Steer helped promote the clinic, getting her shot while wearing skis.
Before December only a limited group could receive the H1N1 vaccine.
Now there are over 300,000 doses available in Alaska, open to everyone.
