Minnesota: Ramsey County holds mass vaccination drill 'Operation Big Shot'

(STAR TRIBUNE) — Ramsey County health officials have come up with a novel way to prepare for what’s called the novel H1N1 flu.

They’re holding a mass vaccination drill called “Operation Big Shot” today to test their ability to immunize a lot of people quickly.

The drill, to be held at North Heights Lutheran Church in Arden Hills, will be run in two sessions, this morning and this afternoon.

Officials are counting on about 300 volunteers to conduct the drill alongside about 200 health department staff members. They emphasized that staffers will not dispense actual vaccinations. [emphasis PID]
