PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Four public health districts in Utah are now offering the swine flu vaccine to anyone that wants it.

The Utah County Health Department is the latest to open the vaccination program to the general public. The health department made the announcement on Tuesday. Starting Thursday, the health department will require appointments for those seeking the vaccine.

The Davis County Health Department, the Weber-Morgan Health Department and the Central Utah Public Health Department are also providing the vaccine to the general public.

Other health departments in Utah are still limiting H1N1 vaccinations to people in priority groups.

The Utah Department of Health says more than 800 people have been hospitalized this season due to swine flu and the seasonal flu.
