Fight erupts among people in line at Reno flu clinic

RENO -- Health officials are urging the public to exercise patience and courtesy after a fight broke out when someone tried to cut in line Thursday at a Reno swine flu clinic.

Washoe County Health District spokeswoman Judy Davis said she didn't have any details of the incident, but it involved people in high-risk groups waiting in line for a chance to get a swine flu shot.

An eyewitness told the Reno Gazette-Journal that a man took a swing at a woman, then jumped on her, and they fell to the ground.

They left after a security guard stepped in and broke up the fight.

Davis said that vaccines were available for 1,200 people Thursday and that from 200 to 300 people in line were unable to get one.
