If you've tried to get the H1N1 vaccine, then you may know just how hard it is to find a place that actually has the shots in stock and won't make you wait in line for hours. In order to avoid the mess of lines, Quebec took a tip from Disneyland and set up a Fastpass-like system to get patients in and out of the hospital.

BoingBoing reports the system seems to be working out well, as most people only end up waiting in line to get their coupons that tell them when to return to get their vaccinations. At one location, nurses actually outnumbered the patients.
