Flu Season

Posted on September 30, 2011


With plenty of influenza vaccine available, U.S. health officials are urging Americans to get a flu shot.

Health officials say that supplies are plentiful and the vaccine is a good match for circulating strains. Currently, more than 85 million doses of flu vaccine are available in doctors’ offices, public health clinics, pharmacies and retail stores, among other sites.

There are four ways to get vaccinated: a nasal spray; the traditional injection vaccine; a high-dose injection for people 65 and older; and a new vaccine injected in the forearm using a smaller needle.
