On Monday, the federal government announced that it will be sending out letters to state and local government officials informing them about the availability of vaccines.
The federal government’s announcement comes just two weeks after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that there are about 300 million doses of the flu vaccine currently available in the United States, with about 100 million doses being delivered to individuals and their families in 2017.
While the CDC has announced the flu shot is “now available,” the government is not yet offering vaccinations in every state.
According to the CDC, about 5.3 million doses are currently distributed to individuals, family members, and others, with the majority of those doses delivered in 2018.
The vaccine has also been distributed to approximately 1.5 million children and adults, and it will continue to be distributed to those who are not yet 18 years old in 2020.
To learn more about the flu vaccination program, read the CDC’s official press release, which also includes information about the state and city-specific requirements.
