Flu Vaccination Shortage Hits Public Clinics

For children only.
With the recent cut in supply of the flu vaccine, adults visiting the Northeast Texas Public Health District will not be able to be vaccinated.  Workers said Wednesday they turned away adults seeking the flu vaccine. However, free vaccinations are still available for children aged 6 months to 23 months.
  Health District Director Nic Sciarrini said it was not known when vaccines will be available through the district for adults.  "The problem is going to be what's cost going to be, and can we even get it," Sciarrini said. "I would imagine we won't know anything definitive until the end of the month."
  An East Texas church is offering  help for adults. The Glenwood United Methodist Church in Tyler is offering immunizations including the flu vaccine for adults 19 and up.
  That's Saturday, October 9, from 10 a.m until 2 p.m. Again, the immunizations are only for adults.
