H1N1/Swine Flu Shots Going Fast In Pitt County

People were standing in line Friday morning to get their H1N1/swine flu vaccine in Pitt County.

It was the first clinic open to the general public for the vaccine. When doors opened at 9:30 a.m. there were between 50 and 100 people waiting.

It didn't take long for those people to get their vaccine, with it taking just a couple minutes for each person to get either the shot or nasal spray.

The health department has 1100 doses to give out, and they expect to use all of those during the clinic on Friday. More vaccine is expected in the next several weeks and the health department says additional clinics will be set up.

Friday's clinic is at the Cooperative Extension Auditorium in the Pitt County Office Park off of Old Creek Road and runs until 5:00 p.m.

    I agree Dar. It seems the level of education of some people is very disappointing.

    It amazes me the level of English grammar that some of these people have that post on these sites.

    The clinic actually opened at 9:00am, 30 minutes early. I took my son (5) and both of us received the H1N1 vaccine. He elected for the mist while I took the shot. I also received the seasonal flu mist there. Knocked out two birds with one stone and it was free. Excellent job Pitt County Health Dept., very organized and efficient, we were out the door by 9:30am.
