Some Minnesota Clinics Out of Flu Vaccine

ST. PAUL (AP) — The Minnesota Health Departments says there is no shortage of flu vaccine in the state — although some people haven’t been able to get flu vaccine from their primary care clinics.

Kris Ehresmann, the department’s infectious disease director, says flu vaccine is still available. But she says you may have to work a little harder to find it, because your primary provider might not have any right away.

Ehresmann says she suspects some clinics are choosing not to reorder vaccine once they’ve used up their supply. She says clinics may be reluctant to obtain more vaccine because they don’t know how long the demand will last.

In those situations, patients can look elsewhere for vaccine using the Health Department’s “Find a Flu Shot Clinic” tool.
