|19 December 2004: [USA] SOUTHEAST IDAHO CONTINUES TO LACK INFLUENZA VACCINE|
|Although some areas of the country are finally flush with adequate flu vaccine, the Southeastern District Health Department has run out. But considering the shortages experienced earlier in the flu season, with large numbers of people lining up to get a shot, SDHD Family and Community Health Coordinator Kelley Tillotson, R.N., said southeast Idaho was pretty well cared for.|
The SDHD received the same quantity of vaccine as last year, Tillotson said. But this year, instead of offering the shots on a first-come, first-served basis, the agency gave first priority to high-risk individuals because of the national shortage. All but a small population of high-risk individuals have yet to receive the vaccine, Tillotson said.
