The line was out the door most of the day at the Rambo Memorial Health Center for people wanting to get the H1N1 vaccine.

As of today anyone can get the the swine flu vaccine and the Rambo Memorial was packed with people trying to stay protected from the virus.

"I’m filling syringes, we’re just so inundated with people that I’ve been vaccinating this morning and we’re running out as far as what’s drawn up so I’m drawing up vaccines so we can keep the line going," Executive Director of Rambo Memorial Crystal Bebout says.

Rambo expects to get another shipment of vaccines from the Health Department in the morning.

"We got 1,000 vaccines from them last week and we’ve given about 700 this morning."

To be vaccinated at Rambo you can just stop in anytime Monday through Friday from 8AM to 4:30PM.
The Zanesville Muskingum Health Department will also offer H1N1 shots by appointment only.
The shots are free but are on a first come first serve basis.
