The flu shot is getting bumped back this year. The vaccine has been re-formulated to incorporate the strains of flu that will affect Canada this year.  This year the World Health Organization is having minor complications with the production of one of the strains.   Maureen Kitson is the Immunization Resource Nurse for the Central Regional Health Authority she says the vaccine is usually ready for mid October, however this year it will be the end of October or mid November before you can get the flu shot. She stresses it won't be a major issue for Manitobans as the flu season doesn't usually occur in our province until mid December. 
Kitson notes they're aren't anticipating a shortage in the vaccine this year, adding they'll put out ads when the vaccine becomes available.
