    Serena Grade School, in LaSalle County, was closed after 69 children were reported having flu symptoms.

    Fairfax County has expanded its swine flu clinic to include vaccinations for all children, ages 6 months through 9 years of age, children 10 years to 18 years who are at higher risk for influenza-related complications, and pregnant women.

    Fairfax is holding vaccination clinics at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 10 and Thursday, Nov. 12, to the first 300 people at each of five Health Department clinic locations. Parents of children less than 6 months of age are also allowed to get vaccinated.
