Shipment Delays Flu Shots

A delay in some shipments of the flu vaccine is forcing some health care providers nationwide to put off offering the vaccine.  While the delays are affecting some health departments in Kentucky none of the departments in our region is currently affected.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the overall vaccine supply is behind by about ten million doses.

While manufacturers originally said they planned to have most doses available by the end of October, shipments will now continue into November
