North Texas clinics are running out of the flu vaccine, and many are not re-ordering.

Nurses at Quest Urgent Care in Dallas say their supply is now depleted and say the reason they're not ordering more is because it's too late in the season.

The CDC says flu season most commonly peaks in January and February.

Dallas County Health Director Zach Thompsom talks about what the county is doing to get more of the vaccine available.
