Only 300 of those vaccines will be available for the general public in a clinic Tuesday.
The rest was given to healthcare workers at Deaconess, St. Mary's and to local college campuses.
UE started vaccinating students Friday morning.
Students formed a line in Graves Hall on Friday waiting to get their H1N1 vaccine.
The university received 430 doses of the vaccine, 250 nasal mist and 180 injections.
The vaccine was administered to students and faculty in health sciences and education departments.
"I am very grateful that we are able to get this," UE athletic trainer Brandon Warner said. "I know every year the flu vaccination itself runs out very fast. With the swine flu epidemic it's great to be able to get one for free and available on campus."
"You're exposed to people everyday and you never know who has it," student Stephanie Holt said. "Just to be safe is the best way to go."
Healthy students, 24 years old and younger, were given the H1N1 nasal mist while students and faculty over 49 or with a chronic health condition like asthma or diabetes got the shot administered by their fellow classmates.
"Our senior nursing students took this on as their community health project," Amy Hall, RN, Ph. D said. "They organized all 160 of our students to give immunizations."
Across town, USI received its first batch of 430 H1N1 vaccines.
Those vaccines will be available Monday for only health professions staff and students like dental hygiene majors.
"Also open it up to our safety and security personnel on campus because they are our first responders and they are in tier one," USI nursing instructor Julie St. Clair said. "We also be going over to the children's center at the end of the day with any vaccine we have left."
Scott Township fire fighters are rolling up their sleeves for the H1N1 injection.
The fire department received 40 doses since it serves as first responders, putting the staff in close contact with the community.
Despite being vulnerable, over the past few weeks several college students in the Tri-State say they have mixed opinions about getting the H1N1 vaccine.
