SALT LAKE COUNTY --Thousands of Utahns swamped clinics across the valley Saturday morning to get their hands on the H1N1 vaccine.
So many people showed up, the Salt Lake Valley Health Department said it ran out of the vaccine.
According to the health department, more than 7,000 injectable doses of the vaccine were administered by 1 p.m.
Mass vaccination clinics across the valley drew large crowds. Some people started lining up as early as midnight. People quickly exceeded the number of available doses at participating clinics, some as early as 7:30 a.m.
The department said Saturday it was completely out of the H1N1 vaccine, and would have to wait until the next shipment arrived to hold more clinics. That is not likely to happen until early November. The Salt Lake Valley Health Department has administered roughly 26,000 doses of H1N1 vaccine since the first vaccinations began on Oct. 7.
