Update From County on Flu Shots

From today's Fairfax Extra:

County health officials said that although they anticipate no shortage of flu vaccine this season, the supply is being delivered in partial orders -- meaning that on certain days, some clinics will be unable to give flu shots until the shots arrive.

Kimberly Cordero, a spokeswoman for the department, said the supply has changed each day. On some days, there is plenty of vaccine, but on other days the supplies run out, she said.

"We do not know when we will receive it," she said of the vaccine shipments.

When additional vaccine is received, she said, the information will be posted at http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/hd/flu , as well as on the department's flu information phone line, 703-246-8781, TTY 711. The Web site lists the Health Department's five district offices, where residents can schedule appointments. The fee is $25.
