More people will be getting the H1N1 vaccine today, even as some health departments, are running low on supplies.

The Jessamine County Health Department hopes to keep that from becoming a big problem.

Officials there are holding a clinic today, but you won't be seeing a big line out the door.

People will be seen to get the H1N1 vaccine, by appointment only.

Health officials estimate 200 people in the target groups will come to get vaccinated.

Officials say they held the clinic today by appointment only because it would be more structured in getting the vaccine to those who need it.

Just this week, the Fayette County Health Department cancelled their H1N1 drive-thru clinic on November 14 because of low supplies.

In Madison County, the H1N1 flu shots were postponed for middle schoolers and high schoolers because of a vaccine shortage.
