More Flu Shots Headed To East Texas

If you're still looking to get a flu shot this year, you might be in luck.  Additional doses of the flu vaccine are expected to become available in East Texas at the beginning of the year.

A shortage in the vaccines earlier this year caused major problems across the country.  The problems resulted in the restriction of the vaccine to those considered "high risk".

Since november, the Texas State Department of Health has given out more than 70,000 flu shots.

 Officials say those interested in getting a flu shot, should contact their doctor for more information.
