H1N1 vaccines run out in Polk County

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Many seeking the H1N1 flu vaccine in Polk County had to be turned away before health officials ran out of doses.

Polk County officials said that they had about 2000 doses of the vaccine to distribute to those lined up at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

The vaccines ran out after about two hours.

Officials predicted they would have enough vaccine for at-risk community members to last for 90 days.

Health department officials say they'll send a notice when they receive their next vaccine shipment.
