State public health officials are awaiting more shipments of H1N1 flu vaccine as initial supplies have been depleted at clinics across the state. Supplies of the vaccine are being shipped to North Carolina and other states from the federal stockpile and are expected to arrive next week. Once the vaccine arrives in North Carolina, it is shipped to local health departments and private clinics that have agreed to administer the vaccine. Members of the state Communicable Disease Branch staff updated the state’s H1N1 response during a statewide Web briefing for local health departments on Tuesday. H1N1 remains the predominate strain that is seen at emergency departments and private clinics, with virtually no signs of seasonal flu at this time.
