More flu vaccine is on the way to Missouri. State Health Department officials say they expect to receive an additional 157,000 doses of vaccine in the next three months. They’ll come from the remaining 11-Million doses that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sending to state and local health departments throughout the country. America’s flu vaccine supply was reduced last month when vaccine that had been expected from a company in England was found to be contaminated. Despite the additional vaccine, there will still not be enough for everyone, and the CDC is still recommending that only those at high risk get the flu shots. They include people over the age of 64, young children, the chronically ill, and certain health care workers.
