BROOKLYN - Brooklyn residents braved the cold weather Saturday to take advantage of the final free H1N1 vaccine clinic, which now welcomes a wider variety of people.

There are five clinic locations across the city, including P.S. 186 on 19th Avenue in Brooklyn. Unlike at the beginning of the vaccination program, when shots were available only to at-risk groups, anyone over the age of four can get a shot now.

A total of about 6,000 Brooklyn residents have so far been vaccinated.

The clinic will be open Saturday through 6 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Officials are warning people to come prepared to wait in line.
