Waiting List Grows For Flu Shots

So far, 1000 at-risk East Texans have had their flu shots through clinics in Tyler, and the waiting list continues to grow.

The Northeast Texas Public Health District continues to get calls as they schedule their by-appointment-only clinics. From now to next Friday, they plan on immunizing another two thousand elderly and at-risk adults. And the District hopes to get more vaccine soon.

"We're expecting at least two thousand doses more which means we can go another week at the current rate. We have enough vaccine in house or on order to take care of people who have called in," says Nic Sciarrini, NETPHD Director.

To get on the District's waiting list, you can call this number during regular business hours:
