About 640 people were given H1N1 vaccinations at a free clinic Tuesday.

"We probably gave 200 vaccinations in the first hour," said Amy Morris, public health nurse with St. Joseph's Area Health Services.


People were lined up about 10:15 a.m. outside St. Peter the Apostle Church, waiting for the doors to open at 11. After the first hour, there was a steady flow of people for the rest of the day, volunteers said.
