TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Health clinics in Tulsa say they're temporarily out of adult flu vaccine.

Tulsa Health Department officials say more than 11,000 free flu shots have been given since October 17th and a shipment of 8,000 more doses is expected soon.

The health department is still giving free pediatric flu shots to children 6-months-old and older.

And the Visiting Nurses Association has canceled all of their remaining flu shot clinics in the Tulsa area. Officials say two shipments of the vaccine were canceled this week.
