From The CBC:

The lineup started before dawn on Tuesday at a Longueuil arena on Montreal's South Shore, where dozens of Quebecers camped out — some with their children in tow — to get the swine flu vaccine.

It's the second day a predawn queue formed at the makeshift clinic, where the wait on Monday was as long as eight hours, despite diligent work by health professionals administering H1N1 influenza vaccines non-stop.

My comment: This is what I call people going "nuts" with wanting to get their flu shot yesterday. Best way to handle the wait and to avoid any other flu variety is to eat properly, rest and sleep properly, stay away from stress, stay away from sick people .... and when it is your turn to get the shot .... which for most of us will be in December .... that is when you go get it.
