A sign on the door of the IU Health Center reads, “Sorry, we are out of flu shots.”
Director of Nursing Nancy Macklin says that is because the center has already distributed all of its vaccinations.
“So this year we are delighted that we could give it all but we are unable to get anymore from our suppliers,” she says.
Macklin says suppliers do not have any more vaccines to sell. But the Monroe County Public Health Clinic’s head nurse Amy Meek says most providers still have plenty to go around.
“Here at the Public Health Clinic, we still have plenty of dosages available, children and adults, and from my understanding most providers here in town still have the flu vaccinations as well,” Meek says.
Macklin says she believes most students can get access to the available vaccines at the other centers in the county if they wish to be vaccinated this season.
