Supplies Of Serum Run Out At Vt. Swine Flu Clinic

Supplies of swine flu vaccine ran out during a clinic in Barre this weekend.

Dozens of people were turned away from Saturday's H1N1 clinic after health care workers quickly ran through the 500 doses they had on hand.

The Times Argus reports that people had lined up for shots well before the clinic opened at 8 in the morning. And by 10:30, nurses closed the doors.

Judy Peterson of the Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice, which sponsored the clinic, said it was disappointing to have to turn people away. Those turned back were advised to go to the next clinic.
