It was a hotbed for swine flu in April and now signs of the virus have arrived in Craven County Schools again.

At least a half a dozen schools have reported students coming down with flu-like symptoms, including fever, sore throat, coughing and vomiting.

None of the cases have been confirmed, but health officials say students are only tested for swine flu if they are hospitalized.

Health officials say they'll continue to monitor the virus closely until the vaccine arrives.

Craven County Health Director Scott Harrelson says he expects the vaccine to arrive in early November, but it will be distributed on a priority basis.
