Fresh flu jabs ordered
The island’s flu jab importer has run out of shots after thousands of the seasonal vaccines were sent out.
But BGA Wholesalers, the distributors for the vaccine, said a fresh delivery was expected on Thursday.
A spokesman for BGA said the firm ordered about 6,000 doses of flu shots for early in the season.
The Ministry of Health said supplies of the vaccine were still available at the government clinic and were expected to last until November 14.
But members of the public have reported that some private practices have run out.
Flu season in Bermuda coincides with colder weather, and peaks around January.
The Centres for Disease Control in the United States said the virus’s activity remained “low” across the country.
