The San Luis Obispo County Public Health Department aimed to inoculate 2,500 people during a mass-vaccination drill at fire departments in Grover Beach, Morro Bay, Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo on Tuesday.
During the exercise, flu shots were given to county employees, emergency first-responders, city employees at the host locations and their families.
The drill, conducted during a 2½-hour morning and a three-hour afternoon session, was aimed at improving the county’s response to pandemics or instances in which the public might have to be inoculated quickly during a health emergency, according to a news release.
The county used federal Department of Homeland Security grant money to pay for the drill.
