More Flu Vaccine on Its Way

By  | 

All flu vaccine supply coming from other countries will have to be inspected by the Food and Drug Administration. Thompson also announced military and other federal agency workers will be getting the flu mist instead of the shots. This leaves an additional 300,000 doses.

All these additional doses will still be used for high-risk people only.

State health officials still stress there is a shortage. They are making plans to combat flu outbreaks should they occur.
