Despite some places experiencing a shortage of this year's flu vaccine, New Mexico is expected to be OK.
The New Mexico Department said there is no shortage of the flu vaccine in the state.
The Centers for Disease Control said more than 110 million doses of the vaccine have already been given out nationwide.
Dr. Jeffrey Thomas with Lovelace Health Care Center said he gives out about 20 doses of the vaccine a day.
"The companies and the government have gotten together and made plenty of flu shots, plenty of vaccines," said Thomas.
