Seasonal flu vaccine runs short — temporarily

By Kelley Luckstein

Olmsted County Public Health announced Monday that it's canceling two vaccination clinics for seasonal flu vaccine — because community response has been "overwhelming" to the health officials' urgings that people get seasonal flu vaccinations…

 

Unless you're a patient at Mayo Clinic (where officials say they have enough seasonal vaccine to handle expected Mayo patient volume) or Olmsted Medical Center (where, the last I knew, they had enough vaccine to handle OMC patient volume), seasonal vaccine won't be available for a few weeks…

 

Until then, Mayo Clinic advises: Wash your hands, wash your hand wash your hands and stay home if sick.
