CAM­PASPE Shire is out of the flu vac­ci­na­tion.

Fol­low­ing a higher than usual up-take of this year’s vac­ci­na­tion the coun­cil has ex­hausted all vac­ci­na­tion stock.

Reg­u­la­tory and com­mu­nity ser­vices gen­eral man­ager Paul McKen­zie said more than 1,000 flu vac­ci­na­tions have been pro­vided to chil­dren and adults through the coun­cil’s im­mu­ni­sa­tion pro­gram this year.

“More than 200 flu vac­ci­na­tions were pro­vided just on Thurs­day which re­sulted in the im­mu­ni­sa­tion team run­ning out of stock,” he said.

“Flu vac­ci­na­tion stock was or­dered ear­lier in the week, how­ever is cur­rently on back or­der.

‘‘It is hoped new stock will be de­liv­ered by the end of the month and the com­mu­nity will be up­dated once re­ceived and the team can recom­mence the com­mu­nity and busi­ness flu im­mu­ni­sa­tion pro­gram.”

An ad­di­tional even­ing ses­sion will be put on in Echuca once stock is re­ceived.
