Adjuvanted H1N1 Vaccine No Longer Available

H1N1 Flu Vaccine - Nurse Tricia Coulter

The Winnipeg Regional Authority said Friday that as of this morning, it has run out of its current supply of the H1N1 vaccine with adjuvant.

Clinics are still open, but will only be able to administer people with the non-adjuvanted vaccine, which pregnant women are receiving.

The non-adjuvanted vaccine is also recommended for anyone aged 10 to 64 with a healthy immune system.

Weekend clinics will also operate on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the University of Manitoba (Multipurpose Room 210, 2nd floor, University Centre) and at the Holy Eucharist Church Parish Hall (460 Munroe Avenue).

Today’s clinics will remain open until 4 p.m.

The WRHA expects another shipment of the adjuvanted vaccine by Monday. photo
