Wake runs out of H1N1 vaccine

Wake County health officials say Monday that they were temporarily suspending H1N1 influenza vaccination clinics after running out of injectable vaccine."We are waiting for additional vaccine supply and anticipate receiving vaccine in the near future. We will work as quickly as possible to meet the needs of citizens," said Wake County Community Health Director Sue Lynn Ledford. "The clinics will reopen when supplies become available."

Ledford said many citizens in the priority groups for the swine flu vaccine have gotten it. Priority groups are people considered to be most at risk for possible complications from an H1N1 infection - like people with compromised immune systems or other chronic health problems.

The County said it will notify the news media when clinics are restocked and reopened.
