Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - Thunder Mountain's parking lot was full and the hallways at Floyd Dryden's Middle School were active this weekend.
It wasn't that school doors have reopened, it was due to people wanting a flu shot.
Alison Gottschlich with the Juneau Public Health Unit reported 821 people got flu shots on Saturday at Thunder Mountain and 511 received shots on Sunday at Floyd Dryden.
She said the event was so popular Saturday that they nearly ran out of flu shot doses. They were able to get some more flu shots from other medical providers to keep the lines moving.
She noted they did this was an emergency response due to COVID-19.
She said another clinic is currently not on the schedule.
"At this point, we have no plans for another clinic, but I think it is not completely off the table if the demand is there."
Agencies taking part included the CBJ, the Juneau School District, SEARHC, the American Red Cross, and Bartlett Regional Hospital.
