No shortage of flu vaccine in California, health officials say
Some local pharmacies may have temporarily run out of the vaccine, but there is ample supply in Los Angeles County, according to a spokesman for the county Public Health Department.
To find out where to get a flu shot, residents are urged to check the Public Health Department website.
California public health officials are preparing for an increase in flu patients and are carefully watching other states, where the influenza outbreak has been much more severe. The flu tends to peak in the state in February or March.
