Hundreds, if not thousands of people came out to get free flu shots at the Northampton Volunteer Fire Company station #83 at 283 Hatboro Rd, Churchville, PA on 9/29/12. This is a video of the backup of traffic lines waiting to get free flu shots at the Northampton Volunteer Fire Company station on Hatboro Rd. Long waits and lines throughout the 10:00am to 1:00pm event. Many took the opportunity to get their shots and many gave up because of the long wait. Hopefully, the County will run more of these programs and at more locations. Here is a link to a video clip http://youtu.be/NYy-eKqaFCg
