Now’s time for flu shots

November 6, 2002

Tonganoxie physician Philip Stevens started vaccinating area residents against the flu early this year.

"We've given 450," Stevens said. "That's a lot of shots. We have a lot of people come back here year after year automatically."

Stevens ordered 600 doses of the influenza vaccine this year, and he's confident he'll use his remaining doses.

"There's a lot of interest in it this year," he said.

Unlike last fall, when the vaccine was in short-supply, Stevens isn't concerned about replenishing his stock.

"I think it's going to be available," he said. "I think if we run out, we could get it within a day or two."
