Waycross - South Georgia health departments are running out of flu vaccines.
The Southeast Health District has ordered 3,000 more vaccinations, but they're on a waiting list and don't know when they might arrive. Some are on reserve for children who've already received their first shots and are required to get a second.
The Southeast Health District serves 16 countines including Atkinson, Clinch, Coffee, and Ware.
Last week, the nation's main flu shot makers said they had distributed all of this year's flu shots -- about 80 million doses -- to distributors. No more flu shots are likely to be manufactured this season because of the time it takes to make the vaccine.
Health districts in Cobb and DeKalb counties have started to reserve remaining supplies for high risk groups. Those groups include the elderly, infants between six months and 23 months and those with compromised immune systems.
Those in high risk groups who have not already received a flu shot should get vaccinated immediately. Most of the state's flu cases have been in metro Atlanta, northeast Georgia and in the Statesboro and Waycross areas.
