Flu Shot Shortage


There's a shortage of the flu shot vaccine across the state.

With more and more cases being reported here, and across the nation, some pharmacies are running out.

"The CDC is currently saying that we are seeing what they call spotty availability, so it means the vaccine is available in the area, but you might have to go to a couple different places to find it," Abbi Pierce said.

We found one pharmacy in Bismarck that is still able to get a hold of the vaccine.

The Medicine Shoppe has been taking names and ordering the vaccine for those who would still like to get it.

Pharmacist Jodi Gader says they can usually get the vaccine from their vendor in a day or two.

"It does seem like we're getting a lot of requests everyday you know there's a lot of publicity out there, and you think well maybe that's the end of it and the next day you start getting phone calls again so it does seem to be more busy than normal for this time of year," Pharmacist, Jodi Gader said.

If you would still like to receive the flu shot just call the Medicine Shoppe.
