Mesa County received its first shipment of the H1N1 virus vaccine, and started giving them out Friday morning.

People lined up at the Mesa County Health Department to get the shots, but after an initial rush, it was slow and steady, and there are still plenty of shots left.

Officials with the Mesa County Health Department say there are 400 shots left, so if you didn't get a chance to get there today, there's still time.

They ask that you do please keep in mind, this first batch is for priority groups, only.

If you want to get this first batch of the vaccine, it is the live virus FluMist.

You can get it at the Mesa County Health Department in the Immunizations Department, but keep in mind Monday, October 12th is a government furlough day, so you’ll have to wait until Tuesday.
