Flu Vaccine Availability
CDC continues to recommend flu vaccination as the first line of defense against the flu. While some individual providers may be running low on flu vaccine at this point in the season, flu vaccine is available from a variety of providers throughout the country. Call your doctor, or use the flu vaccine finder to find where vaccine is available in your community.
Flu vaccine is available, but providers may not be able to get every brand and/or presentation, and they may have to purchase from a different source. Providers interested in purchasing vaccine should check the influenza vaccine tracking availability system (IVATS) available at: https://www.izsummitpartners.org/ivats/.
