Three H1N1 vaccine clinics in Wake County Saturday closed at their scheduled time with supplies of both the nasal mist vaccine and the shot remaining.Clinics in Apex, Raleigh, and Wake Forest all saw strong demand early in the day, which died down by mid-afternoon.

Officials say they are still giving the vaccine only to people in "high risk" groups, as defined by the CDC. But they say they anticipate having enough vaccine for everyone over the next few months.

Authorities still encourage people to contact their personal physician to see if they have the H1N1 vaccine before going to a county clinic.

Wake County has not yet announced its next clinic dates.
