Health officials vaccinated more than 2,100 people at the first H1N1 vaccination clinic yesterday.
The day progressed with few glitches, and the El Paso County Department of Health and Environment had leftover vaccines to give at other clinics scheduled during the next two weeks.
Many pharmacies and doctors in the region have now received shipments of H1N1 vaccinations, but the health department said that not all pharmacies have the shots, and not everyone will receive them.
High risk groups will be the first to get the shot – infants and their parents, people who are 6 months through 24 years old and older people with other chronic conditions.
The next clinic is scheduled Friday at 8:30 a.m. at New Life Church, 11025 Voyager Parkway. Two other clinics are also scheduled: Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Harrison High School, 2755 Janitell Road and Thursday at 10 a.m. at The Hangar in Fountain.
