Flu vaccine 2013 is proving to be an elusive product since so many people have come down with the influenza virus. And on Sunday it was being reported that of the 135 million doses projected to be manufactured this year, more than 128 million of them had already been distributedÂ—and many of those had already been used.
News9.com reported that "people are having trouble finding it," in Oklahoma, with one woman saying her husband had gone everywhere in Grady County, but every pharmacy was sold out of it, and the emergency room in Chickasha didn't have it either.
The Oklahoma Health Department says there is no shortage; however, with pharmacists being able to vaccinate babies as young as six months old, people now have more places to seek the flu vaccine 2013 than medical facilities, so the vaccine could be sold out everywhere but the health department for all they know. Right?
New York has had such a bad case of flu outbreak this year that Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a public health emergency for his state. And some people who took the time to get the flu vaccine, but still got the influenza virus anyway, wonder if it was worth it, since they got sick anyway.
