SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Department of Health is reporting three more swine flu-related deaths.

The department said Wednesday the total number of deaths related to H1N1 this flu season is now at 23 as of Saturday.


The total number of hospitalizations related to both the seasonal flu and swine flu is 807, 37 more than reported last week.

In the meantime, some health departments across Utah are opening up swine flu vaccination clinics to the general public. They include the Davis County Health Department and Weber-Morgan Health Department.

The Bear River Health Department, Salt Lake Valley Health Department, Utah County Health Department and Southwest Utah Public Health Department, however, say they are still limiting H1N1 vaccinations to people in priority groups.
