Weekend H1N1 vaccinations top 16,000

Posted: Updated:

(CNS) - More than 16,000 San Diego County residents were vaccinated against the swine flu over the weekend, it was reported today.

Nearly 6,890 were vaccinated Saturday and another 9,578 on Sunday, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune. People stood in line at seven immunization clinics to receive their vaccinations, the newspaper reported.

Vaccines were only given to children and young adults through age 24, health care workers, pregnant women and people with chronic health issues. County health officials said people who do not fall in those categories will be able to get the vaccine to ward off the H1N1 virus as more doses become available.

Roughly 102,000 doses arrived in the county Friday. About 300,000 more vaccine doses are expected within the next two weeks.
