FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Saltzer Medical Group will be holding a one day Adult Seasonal Flu Vaccine clinic on Tuesday, October 13, 2009. The clinic will begin at 8:30 AM, and will continue until vaccine supplies are depleted. The clinic will take place at Saltzer Medical Groups main clinic at 215 E. Hawaii Ave, Nampa.
Saltzer originally planned for 10 days of flu shot clinics, at three locations, but a call to a supplier earlier today determined that the national shortage of seasonal flu vaccine will impact those plans.
â€œWe found out just a few hours ago that our suppliers were unable to provide sufficient vaccines to cover our seasonal flu shot clinics. We are disappointed by this news and are concerned about the impact it will have on our patients and staff. We are hoping to receive another shipment early winter, and may plan another flu shot clinic at that time.â€ Stated Pat Herman, LPN, Immunization Coordinator
We apologize for any inconvenience that this national shortage may cause.
