Massachusetts, Chicago say they're getting more flu vaccine 

Some parts of the country have more flu vaccine. Massachusetts is getting more than 262-thousand additional doses from Aventis Pasteur, the lone remaining maker of vaccine for the U-S market. But a state official says there's still not enough vaccine, so healthy kids older than two and healthy adults younger than 75 still have to do without. Chicago has 25-thousand new doses. The city's health department says it will set aside seven-thousand for walk-in clinics. The rest will go to hospitals, nursing homes and other health care providers. High-risk people will get first priority.
