BROOKLYN - Beginning Saturday, middle and high school students in New York City will be able to receive free swine flu vaccinations at weekend clinics.

According to the Department of Health, clinics will be able to accommodate about 500 people per hour over the next five weekends. In the Bronx, two clinics will be open at P.S. 314 and Teacher's Prep High School this weekend.

Health officials say people should find out their designated clinics according to their zip codes before coming out to get vaccinated.

The vaccines are intended for middle and high school students, but they will be administered to all children 4 years old and older with their parents' consent.
