Topeka (WIBW) - The numbers are in on just how many people braved the cold and snow Tuesday to defend themselves against the H1N1 virus.
The Shawnee County Health Agency says 1500 people were vaccinated at their first clinic that was open to the public. They had 1900 doses on hand.
Barbara Heston from the health agency called it a very good turn out, especially considering the weather.
The agency's next H1N1 clinic is a bit different. It is set for 5 to 8 pm, Tuesday, Dec. 15th, at Shawnee Heights High School. Due to school being in session, people will not be allowed on school grounds before 4 pm.
The agency will return to the Expocentre for a clinic from 3 to 7 pm, Tuesday, Dec. 22.
“The Shawnee County Health Agency is working to provide the opportunity for residents to be vaccinated before the holiday season over the next two weeks in our community,” Anne Freeze, health agency director, said.
