An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure but it may be a little while before this year's flu vaccine is ready.
"The (Food and Drug Administration) hasn't released the vaccine yet," said Beth Herold, manager of complete care services for the Visiting Nurses Association, based in Butler. "They have not even done their testing yet."
Herold said, once the vaccine is released to suppliers, then there should be enough for everyone interested. But officials aren't saying when that may happen.
"They're telling us we'll probably get it sometime during this flu season," she said. "We have like 10,000 doses that we're waiting for. Last year we didn't get it until December. They've assured us that isn't going to happen again this year."
