Winnipeg Running Out of H1N1 Vaccine

H1N1 Flu Vaccine VialsOn Wednesday, provincial health officials opened up flu clinics to any Manitoban who wanted the H1N1 vaccine. Because of that, supply is running low at Winnipeg’s 12 immunization clinics.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority expects the vaccine to run out by either later today or tomorrow. This means that only the non-adjuvanted vaccine will be available to be administered to pregnant women, those 10 and over, and under 65 who do not have compromised immune systems.

Weekend clinics were expected to be held, but that’s up in the air at this point.
