Flu vaccine in short supply along South Coast

 After a massive public campaign to get vaccinated there's now a vaccine shortage.
The flu vaccine shortage is continuing along the South Coast. 
The vaccine has been in short supply nationally over the last month following a massive campaign to get the public vaccinated, and doctors and pharmacies in towns along the South Coast are also struggling to keep up. 
In Bega there are currently no vaccines for people who aren't eligible for the government's free vaccines.
However one surgery in Narooma yesterday said even the vaccines available through the government program have run out for over-65s and they were taking orders. The surgery said they were ordering every day, but had been limited to ordering 20 at a time, when previously they'd been able to order 100.
