Swine flu shots will be available for people in certain target groups at 100 pharmacies in Dallas County beginning Wednesday.

The Dallas County Health Department gave 16,000 doses of the vaccine to Walgreens, Tom Thumb, Kroger and Walmart stores.

Only certain locations have the shots. The complete list is available on the Dallas County Web site.

The target groups include pregnant women, anyone 6 months to 22 years old, caregivers of babies younger than 6 months old and people 25 through 64 with underlying health conditions.

In Tarrant County, flu shots will be available on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Resource Center in southeast Fort Worth.

Also, the health department will offer the vaccines at seven public health clinics beginning Friday.

Information on the Tarrant County vaccines is available here.

Area health departments expect thousands more doses to arrive soon and plan to offer them to people outside the target groups in the next several weeks.
