Hundreds Flock to H1N1 Clinic

By  | 

For months people have anxiously awaited the H1N1 vaccination, and a large number of doses were given in Parkersburg Friday.

A line of children and pregnant women wrapped around the Dils Center, through the bus garage and even further down the street; all hoping to get vaccinated.

The clinic offered free H1N1 vaccinations for expecting mothers and children between six months and four years of age.

"It's kind of overwhelming, but I can understand everyone's fear," Linda Mason, a grandmother, said about the line.

"She just knows that she's gonna get a shot and she don't like it," Jessica Freshour said about her daughter.

The H1N1 clinic began at 2:00 Friday afternoon, but folks started lining up at 7:00 in the morning.

As of 5:30 p.m. officials say it's likely the vaccine will run out before reaching the end of the line.
