Flu vaccines running low at some NYC locations

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Some New York City pharmacies and clinics are reporting flu vaccine shortages prompted by reports of widespread outbreaks.

The city's Health Department said Monday the shortages are in individual locations, and don't reflect a larger supply problem.

The city is maintaining an online map to help residents find flu vaccines.

City Health and Hospitals Corp. facilities, including its clinics, have no shortages.

Every county in the state has significant incidence of the flu. It reflects the worst nationwide outbreak in four years. The federal Centers for Disease Control said 47 states are reporting widespread outbreaks, and the flu season is earlier and busier than in recent years.

CDC suggested that flu season will peak early. It usually lasts through March.
