Boston Globe, October 21, 2009

Shortages of the vaccine against seasonal flu strains are also being reported, as unusually high demand is outpacing the supply. The problems seen in Massachusetts reflect a nationwide shortage, as production facilities have been unable to churn out adequate amounts of either vaccine.
