Demand for flu shot increases, thanks to H1N1

The H1N1 flu pandemic has caused a rush on flu shots, raising the frustration levels of many expecting to receive the vaccination.

Tara Claypool, a CVS pharmacist, said she has noticed an increase in demand for seasonal flu shots in area stores.

"Most of our stores scheduled two flu clinics but canceled the second clinic, because there weren't enough," said Claypool, who noted that the Visiting Nurse Association receives and administers the vaccine at the CVS stores. "There's a limited number of vaccinations, and they didn't have enough to get through the whole day."

A spokesman for Walgreens said his company is experiencing the same kind of demand nationwide because of the H1N1 scare.
