Westchester health officials having trouble getting flu vaccines
Despite the federal government claiming there would be no shortage of flu shots this year, many health officials are having trouble getting them.
The Westchester Health Department estimates that 150,000 people already got a flu shot this year. The department alone doled out 7,000 doses at 50 clinics it sponsored. However, Dr. Joshua Lipsman says the department could use another 7,000 to meet the demand.
A Medical Society of New York survey determined 60 percent of doctors still haven't received flu vaccines.
