896 People Get H1N1 Inoculation
It was standing room only—outside and all the way out to the road near the Provincial Building as the inside was jammed with people as well. Men, women and children shown here were waiting to get an inoculation against the H1N1 influenza on Thursday, October 29 before the shots began at 1 p.m. Story below. ©Provost News Photo.
• Some Turned Away
• Clinics Suspended
Nine nurses in Provost kept busy giving inoculations via needles to 896 people from 1 p.m. until after 7 p.m. at the Provincial Building on Thursday, October 29.

Those getting the shot were hoping to avoid a disease now in the community called H1N1.

Shots were also administered to combat other expected regular influenza this fall and winter.

Some people were turned away beginning at 4:30 p.m. after a count of those waiting because the clinic was scheduled to close by 7 p.m. After some had been turned away others showed up later (one appeared at approximately 6:40 p.m.) and they received an inoculation.

The line-up at 1 p.m. stretched from inside the building west out onto the street and later others were standing on the street leading further south. Some did not attempt to get in the line while others left the line before getting in the building.

It was reported that some people began lining up between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. that day and some people waited for two hours and 15 minutes to get the inoculation.

There were 180 doses left over which were to have been taken to Hughenden to be prepared for a clinic staffed by possibly six nurses there this week (this information was correct as of Friday however province-wide H1N1 clinics were since reported suspended effective Oct. 31 because of a reduced supply of vaccine).
