The H1N1 outbreak seems to be easing in Illinois. Two new deaths are reported in the state this week. That's down from last week's total of nine.

All Illinois residents older than six months can now get the swine flu vaccination. Local health departments, private doctors, and many pharmacies are giving it.

There are fewer people being hospitalized with the flu and many hospitals are easing rules for people visiting patients with H1N1.
