EVERETT, Wash. – Snohomish County hopes to vaccinate 12,000 people against swine flu this weekend.

There will be 10 flu clinics Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. People are advised to dress warmly and to bring an umbrella or waterproof jacket because they could be waiting in line outside.

The clinics will only provide vaccine to people in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) target groups, plus teachers and professional child care providers. The groups do not include people older than 65. The target groups are:

-All pregnant women (Note: Thimerosal-free vaccine will not be available at the clinics. Vaccine that is thimerosal-free will be available from a pregnant patient's obstetrician or family practitioner)

-All persons ages 6 months through 24 years
