Survey: Most nursing homes have no flu vaccinesby Cathy Wurzer, Minnesota Public Radio
Early results of a survey of nursing homes around the state shows most do not have any flu vaccines. The Minnesota Department of Health is conducting the survey in response to the shutdown of a flu shot manufacturing plant that wiped out half the U.S. supply. Most Minnesota nursing homes were expecting their vaccines to come from that manufacturer. Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer spoke with Kristen Ehresmann, manager of the immunization program at the Minnesota Department of Health.
