The Sangamon County Health Department says it is getting some reports of sporadic shortages of flu vaccine at some local doctor’s offices. But Health Director Jim Stone says his agency still has hundreds of doses on hand, and should be able to meet the demand, despite a spike in those seeking flu shots in recent days.
But Stone does not expect to get additional vaccine beyond the two-thousand or so doses he has remaining. So he says anyone who hasn’t gotten a flu shot yet and wants one shouldn’t put it off for much longer.
And Stone says he hopes people will remember the current scramble for the shots next fall… when it’s time to think about flu shots again.
