(KSL News) -- The Salt Lake Valley Health Department put its skills to the test today.

The department invited thousands of people to help test its ability to give large numbers of people vaccinations in the event of a bioterrorist attack or large scale outbreak.

Workers gave out 2-thousand flu vaccines, along with pneumonia and tetanus shots to pre-selected groups of homeless, low income, and other high risk residents.
