Michigan health officials are lifting an emergency order limiting doses of the flu vaccine to high-priority groups.
Healthy adults can begin receiving a flu shot on Thursday. But the state health department still is emphasizing that there is a shortage of the vaccine in the state.
Michigan has received 1.7 million doses of the flu vaccine, and another 200,000 are in the pipeline.
Private physician offices and local public health offices on Thursday will begin following voluntary flu shot distribution guidelines set by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
The order was issued October 14 to strictly limit a shortage of flu shots to the elderly, infants, pregnant women, and other at-risk groups.
