UPDATED AT 1:10 P.M.: Cass H1N1 vaccine clinic in West Fargo now closed; 840 doses given

The second H1N1 vaccine clinic in Cass County is now closed.

About 840 doses of the free vaccine were given out in four hours.

The doors opened right at 9 a.m. for more than 150 people who stood in line for this morning's clinic at West Fargo High School. But by 10:15 a.m., there were no lines outside, and the wait inside quickly dwindled.

West Fargo police told people they would need to have their children with them upon entering the high school, 801 9th St. E. The first people got in line at 6:30 a.m. this morning.

The clinic was for children ages 6 months to 4 years old, and children ages 5 to 18 who have a chronic medical condition, such as asthma, cystic fibrosis or immune deficiency.

About 900 doses of injectable vaccine were available.
