Walgreens

The pharmacy chain is experiencing shortages of flu shots in North Texas, but expects more vaccine in the next day or two. Patients are asked to call ahead to see if the store near them has flu vaccine in stock.

CVS

Due to high demand caused by the outbreaks of influenza across the country, some locations are experiencing sporadic shortages of flu vaccine. CVS/pharmacy and MinuteClinic have been providing flu shots since early fall, and the current high demand is unprecedented for this time of year. Every effort is being made to resupply pharmacies and clinics with vaccine as needed.

The chain of clinics says it is going through its flu vaccine supply quickly, but is expecting another shipment on Tuesday, January 14.
