Boyle County Health Department has been vaccinating about 100 people a day for the flu, and there are still shots available for high risk groups.
There have been no flu cases reported to the health department. Nurse supervisor Vikki Vernon said the first cases usually show in late November and early December.
The Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Lexington also has a limited flu vaccine supply. The hospital is only giving vaccinations to those receiving care there, and who are high risk to contract the flu.
Those considered high risk are:
* Adults 65 and over, but the county health department is giving shots to those 50 and older.
* People 2 to 64 years old with chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes.
* Pregnant women.
* Children, 6 months to 18 years old, on chronic aspirin therapy.
Health care workers who have direct contact with patients in Boyle County can get a shot, with proof of employment, at the health department.
