Four more cases of H1N1 flu have been diagnosed in Marion County, bringing the total to 13 so far.
The latest of those sickened were ages 2, 5, 12 and 54, said Marion County Health Department Administrator Jean McBride.
The cases were scattered throughout the county and all of the patients had recovered, she said.
Marion County still is awaiting shipments of the H1N1 injectable shot. Once it arrives, it will be distributed by the Hannibal Clinic.
Other area counties with confirmed H1N1 cases include Lewis, Pike and Monroe in Northeast Missouri and Adams and Pike in West-Central Illinois.
Missouri now has a toll-free hotline for people to get answers about H1N1 questions. The number is 877-358-4141 and will be answered 24 hours a day.
