ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- A St. George clinic will offer mass swine flu vaccinations for people in some high-risk groups on Wednesday.

The Southwest Utah Public Health Department calls it a "drive-through shoot-out."

It's reserving the H1N1 shots for pregnant women, parents of infants younger than six months, and all children under 10 with medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, heart, kidney and lung conditions.

The Riverside Drive clinic won't charge for the vaccinations, but will take insurance cards for reimbursement. Vaccines will be available in both nasal and injection form while supplies last.

As more vaccine shipments arrive, the clinic says it will provide shots for teenagers and young adults, then people aged 25 to 65 with high-risk health conditions, followed by the general public.

The department's website lists locations for H1N1 vaccines as follows (while supplies last):
