Students at Crozet Elementary School will get swine flu shots Tuesday as the flow of the vaccine picks up after a long dry spell.

Most of the Albemarle County elementary schools already had their vaccine clinics when the supply ran out, leaving Crozet and three other schools waiting for a new shipment.

The three schools, Greer, Meriwether Lewis and Agnor-Hurt, are set to have swine flu clinics on Friday, but that's only if another shipment of vaccine arrives, according to Albemarle County Schools spokeswoman Maury Brown.

Enough vaccine is in Charlottesville to serve the Crozet kids.

The shots are free to children if their parents sign the appropriate forms. About 70-90% of the eligible children have been getting the vaccine when it's available.
