SANTA FE (AP) - New Mexico health officials say five more people have died from the H1N1 flu in the last week.

The deaths include a 52-year-old Sandoval County man, a 51-year-old San Juan County woman, a 69-year-old Bernalillo County man, a 73-year-old Socorro County man and a 49-year-old man whose residence wasn’t immediately determined.

All five victims had chronic medical conditions that placed them at higher risk.

Health officials say there have been 21 deaths in New Mexico this year related to H1N1 influenza.

The state Health Department has ordered 124,310 doses of nasal and injectable H1N1 vaccine, which is arriving in small amounts and being distributed to providers and public health offices.
