More People are Getting Flu Shots and Smaller Pharmacies Are Running Out

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

As the number of people dying from H1N1 continues to grow more people are getting flu shots. Smaller Valley pharmacies say they have so many people asking for the vaccine, they may run out.

"I don't know if people were really doing it, because the flu wasn't here. People were feeling good and the weather was good," says Dianne Jung from Sunnyside Pharmacy.

With so many people getting the flu vaccine that's left smaller pharmacies with low supplies.

"It's becoming more and more difficult to find, because there is an increased demand," adds Jung.

A lot of the vaccine is going to the government. You can get a flu shot at your county health department.

In Fresno County flu vaccinations are available at the Fresno County Department of Public Health located at 1221 Fulton Mall in downtown Fresno. The clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 12:00pm and from 1:00 – 4:00 pm. The shots are $6. No one will be refused services due to inability to pay.
