People scared by the national news of a nasty flu epidemic have been racing to find their flu shots, with little luck locally.
The pharmacist at Tarrytown’s Walgreens reports that the phone is ringing off the hook with people on the hunt for a place to get their vaccines.
Neither of the two CVSs in Tarrytown nor the Walgreens has the shot available now. Nor would most any doctor, the Walgreens pharmacist who only gave his name as Kevin, said.
“They are releasing it in small quantities, and when we had some people were lining up from all over the county,” he said.
No pharmacist at the three local chains could speculate when they would get more.
“Were waiting on them,” the Walgreens pharmacist said.
