Delaware health officials say they are concentrating their swine flu efforts in the state's schools. That's because national statistics show 80 percent of cases are in those under age 30 with the average age being 12. Health officials plan to hold vaccination clinics in schools this October when the first doses of a new swine flu vaccine arrive.

Rita Landgraf, state secretary of health and human services, says it's not clear how many doses the state will receive, but it will be enough to cover those most at-risk.
