Free H1N1 Clinics Canceled

All free H1N1 flu shot clinics at Rutland schools that were scheduled for this week have been postponed until November. The Rutland Herals reports that vaccines are in short supply and, the Vermont Department of Health's website quote -- "we regret having to delay some clinics. National production delays mean only a limited amount of vaccine - far less than we had hoped and planned for - is available right now for schools, health care provider offices, hospitals and home health agencies. This will change over the next several weeks." Of the 49 school clinics scheduled for this week statewide, the website says 19 have been.
