Trinity Mother Frances Cancels Flu Shot Clinics

The flu vaccination shortage is forcing an East Texas hospital to cancel a number of flu shot clinics. Trinity Mother Frances has cancelled flu shot clinics scheduled in Athens, Canton, Chandler, Jacksonville, Kilgore, Lake Palestine, Lindale, Mineola, Quitman, Tyler and Whitehouse.
The vaccines will now only be administered by strict guidelines. The guidelines allow immunizations for children 6 to 23 months old, adults over age 65 and those with chronic illnesses.
