I got it last weekend. They are getting more supply in daily etc. I do know if you don’t have an LTI or are in other at risk categories, they were postponing it a bit to cover these first. Out sounds to me like there is more than ample supply to cover the at risk groups as they are starting allowing people not in those gross to go ahead

Got a flu jab for the first time ever in the past few days. The supply issues, at least round Galway, seem to be resolved from what I can see.

Just on the supply issues. Was speaking to my GP today as I was getting mine.
Still serious issues.
Their 1st delivery was 220 versus last few years being 1000.
Their 2nd was 200 and their 3rd delivery this week was only 80.

This would be for a very busy multi-doctor surgery.
There was a bit of dissatisfaction expressed regarding the HSE starting their Flu ad campaign in August but not securing sufficient deliverable stock to support a campaign starting in mid September.

I usually get my jab mid October anyway so it's not an issue for me but there are still shortages of vaccine at GP level at least.

We usually get ours end of September. Our doctors surgery couldn't get us in until first week of November. Only the 4 year old has had his because they were running a nasal vaccine clinic for kids but they told us the standard vaccine is still experiencing supply issues. Both myself and OH have a number of conditions which would deem us high risk as well.

No pharmacies in the area had availabilities until mid-end Nov.

Thanks all <3 seems like everyone is going for it and I'll book mine soon. Just don't want to be taking a dose that an elderly person might want. I'll chat to my pharmacy!
