ARDMORE, OK -- While it may seem like the worst part of the H1N1 flu outbreak has passed, Carter County health officials tell us there is still a need to get vaccinated.
The health department held a drive-through H1N1 clinic Monday to make it quick and easy for residents get the shot.
The health department says they have already reached all of the high-risk groups, so now the vaccine is available for everyone on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The clinic gave over 500 doses Monday, and say it's still important for the community to be aware of H1N1.
"Usually the flu actually peaks in January and February, so were not really for sure if it's going to peak more in January and February or if this is where we are going to see it. But we encourage everyone to come and get vaccinated, "Carter County nurse Kristi Insleman says.
The health department says they will be given the H1N1 shots to residents at the Carter County Health Department office for the rest of the week as long as they last.

By Malena Castaldi MONTEVIDEO (Reuters) - Uruguay's Senate is expected to pass a law on Tuesday making the small South American nation the world's first to allow its citizens to grow, buy and smoke marijuana. The pioneering government-sponsored bill establishes state regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals. Uruguayans would also be allowed to grow up to six plants of marijuana in their homes a year, or as much as 480 grams (about 17 ounces). Uruguay's attempt to undo drug trafficking is being followed closely in Latin America where the legalization of some narcotics is being increasingly seen by regional leaders as a possible way to end the violence spawned by the cocaine trade.
