A group of Indiana health care workers have been among the first in the nation vaccinated against the swine flu.

Health officials in Indiana and Tennessee set events for Monday to administer nasal mist doses of the swine flu vaccine to doctors, nurses, emergency medical workers and other health care professionals who work directly with patients.

Indiana’s first dose was administered to Dr. Charles Miramonti, an emergency room physician at Wishard Memorial Hospital in Indianapolis. He was given the FluMist vaccine in front of a bank of television cameras at an event attended by Gov. Mitch Daniels.

Initial shipments of the nasal mist vaccine are so small that in most cases they’re being reserved for health workers.
