Too Many H1N1 Vaccines Ordered?

Posted: Updated:


OKLAHOMA CITY -- Health officials now looking into the possibility they ordered too many H1N1 flu vaccines.

Many Oklahomans stood in long lines hoping to get the vaccine. Now more than 1,200 providers across the state are working to get even more Oklahomans vaccinated.

"Flu runs in waves and, of course, we saw a wave of flu early in March and February of last year; of course it came back in the fall and it would be very likely that it would re-circulate again," said Don Blose with the State Health Department's Immunization Services. "Most of the flu vaccine that we have, the H1N1 flu vaccine, will expire somewhere at the end of June, so now is the time to get vaccinated."

The CDC allocated about a million and a half doses for Oklahoma. Health officials say you shouldn't have problems finding seasonal or H1N1 vaccines.
