Fargo flu clinic won't allow people to stand inside while waiting for vaccine Saturday

FARGO -- People who arrive early for Cass County's H1N1 vaccination clinic Saturday morning will have to wait outside, so health officials said they don't want lines forming before the clinic opens.

Because of how the clinic is being set up at Fargo North High School, the first parents and children to line up will not be able to wait inside despite possible inclement weather, said Ruth Bachmeier, director of Fargo Cass Public Health.

Bachmeier said they are still anticipating lots of people to come and plan to administer all of the 1,500 to 2,000 doses of H1N1, or swine flu, vaccine they have available.

Tomorrow's public H1N1 vaccination clinic is the first in Cass County.

Children ages 6 months through 9 years old are eligible to receive either the FluMist or injectable forms of the vaccine.

The clinic runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., or until the vaccine runs out. Non-North Dakota residents can participate.
