“The size of the turnout was unexpected,” said Ken Kellogg, director of emergency preparedness.

He said more than 100 persons were on line before the scheduled 1 p.m. start and by 2:10 p.m. it was clear there was not enough vaccine on hand and the clinic closed 50 minutes ahead of schedule.

“We no longer have sufficient vaccine to conduct walk-in clinics so we are canceling the walk-in clinics that were scheduled for Monday and Tuesday,” he said.

CodeRed Alert Helps Find Missing Elderly Woman

UPDATE A CodeRed automatic telephone call about a missing 74-year-old Westport woman helped locate her today several miles from her home, police said.

The woman who is suffering from dementia wandered away from her condominium home on Post Road East at about 10 a.m., according to police.

After police received a call from relatives, they called in a State Police tracking dog and issued a town-wide CodeRed telephone alert shortly before 3 p.m.

A short time later, two residents who received the call said they saw someone matching her description walking along Compo Road South.
