Turnout At H1N1 Vaccine Clinic More Than Expected

December 16, 2009, 5:01 PM by Kelli Grant

Turnout At H1N1 Vaccine Clinic More Than Expected
A Sioux Falls Drug Store opened its doors Wednesday to more than a thousand people who wanted to get their H1N1 vaccine.  And the turnout was a bit more than expected.

The original plan was to vaccinate 600 people, but a Sioux Falls Lewis Drug Store was able to give 1,100 doses to those willing to roll up their sleeve.

By pooling resources, they were able to get extra vaccine in throughout the day. And by 3 p.m., all the doses were gone. Most of the day, people waited in very long lines. Organizers say the clinic is proof that people still want the vaccine and are willing to wait.

"We've had great demand. We had a line around the store this morning. As quantities were lasting is how we were giving the doses so it's been a great great turnout for Lewis," Lewis Drug Pharmacist Sara Hicks said.

The clinic was free and open to everyone over 10 years old. And because of its success, the drug store is already planning a second vaccine clinic that will take place in a few weeks.

There are several H1N1 vaccine clinics Thursday across South Dakota, including one at the Convention Center in Sioux Falls. And the clinics are open to the general public.
