Where have all the flu vaccines gone??

Filed under: Uncategorized — dcdesi @ 3:14 am

Went to CVS yesterday for a flu shot. That was after waiting almost two weeks for a flu shot appointment, only to find out, the only flu vaccine available is the H1N1 vaccine.
The US govt,or the pharmaceutical companies or a combination of the two, expecting a really bad flu season, apparently decided to order lots of H1N1 vaccines. Unfortunately, with the regular flu season around the corner, it’s becoming extremely difficult to get the regular flu shot, at least in the cville area if not elsewhere.

That would explain why the new vaccine is available in stores for $10 while the regular flu vaccine, till last year, would cost anywhere from $20-$30. It would also explain the numerous adds encouraging people to get their H1N1 shots.

over n out

PS: snow in cville- we’re expecting anywhere from 18-28 inches- is this cville or chicago?
