A White House official tells CBS News that President Obama has yet to receive either his seasonal flu shot or the H1N1 vaccine.

The official says Mr. Obama plans to be inoculated, but wants to make sure that "high-risk folks in the White House" get their flu shots before him.

The official says the H1N1 vaccine isn't available yet, but Mr. Obama will get vaccinated once priority recipients are taken care of.
