"Officials Hope to Stagger Flu Immunizations"
 
"Flu shots became available this week, but they're being rationed again -- at least for now. Because of supply uncertainties, shots are reserved until Oct. 24 for people who are at greatest risk of severe complications from influenza. They include health workers, older adults, infants and children with chronic diseases."
