CVS pharmacies across Boston are out of flu shots.
This year's flu has already ushered in a public health emergency and caused five deaths in Boston. And after city officials urged residents to get flu shots this past weekend, there is now a flu shot shortage. But one local pharmacy in West Roxbury still had a good amount of flu shots as of Monday afternoon. The Osco Pharmacy inside Shaw's at 75 Spring Street had flu shots. The pharmacist would not say how much, but they had "enough." The CVS at 1921 Centre St., in West Roxbury, was out of flu shots and a pharmacist there said they hoped to have more on Thursday, but wasn't counting on it. A Back Bay CVS pharmacist said that Boston branches are out of the vaccine and were hoping to have more soon.
