Residents getting flu vaccinations due to national epidemic

Published: Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 10:11 AM.

Walgreen’s has plenty of the shots available for ages 18 and up, Saunders said, adding a corporate office tracks its supply.

"It's allocated by the number of usage," he said. Once a distributor sees the number of vaccines distributed, the store stocks accordingly.

For now, local supply is meeting the need.

"We have enough to last a couple of weeks at least," Gordon said.

"Both of our locations, (including Fort Walton Beach) have plenty of vaccinations in stock," said Mandy Nesbitt, a medical assistant at Crestview Urgent Care, which administers the shot to ages 4 and up.

Even if the facility ran low, restocking them is no problem, she said.

The Okaloosa County Health Department is giving specialized flu shots for children under 4.
