We have 75 doses of the seasonal flu vaccine (with preservatives) for ages 4 years through adults available. If you haven’t gotten one yet this year, come on by the retail store between 9am-5pm Monday-Friday or 9am-4pm on Saturday.
We also have preservative-free pediatric vaccines for ages 6 months to 36 months. If this is your child’s first vaccine they will need two doses about a month apart, so let us know!
Still no word on when we will receive the H1N1 vaccine. According to an article I read in Time Magazine the government has backed off the original estimate of 120 million doses by mid-October. They have shipped out some (11 million) and are hoping to ship out another 50 million by mid-November and 150 million in mid-December. The flu virus in grown in chicken eggs and can be somewhat unreliable to culture causing delays in production. In the meantime, remember to wash your hands often, cover your coughs, stay home if you’re not feeling well, and avoid touching your eyes!
Now you know as much as I do about the current availability!
