Mesa County Health Department officials say they're temporarily out of the seasonal flu vaccine for adults and children.

Officials say due to the high demand for the vaccine they've run out. But the outage is a shipping delay, not a shortage of the vaccine.

Up to this point, the Health Department has issued 2,400 vaccines and that another 1,600 were ordered. They have yet to arrive. Officials say they don't have a ship date from the manufacturer at this time.

11 News will let you know when the vaccines arrive. County vaccine information is available on the County's Web site by clicking below.
