September 25, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
L.A. County health officials are closely monitoring four new cases of flu.The big concern is that the four cases could be swine flu, but no confirmation on that yet.

The four cases include two elementary school students, one high school student, and one university student.

Health officials decline to name the schools because of privacy concerns.

They also decline to call it an "outbreak."

The L.A. County Health Department defines an outbreak as "five" cases.

Right now they only have four cases of flu.

Swine flu shots are expected to be available next month.
