Ontario not worried about flu shot supply
Some other provinces don't have enough to meet demand.

While other provinces are facing flu shot shortages, Ontario's health minister says we're doing okay.

In an interview with Newstalk 1010, Deb Matthews reveals despite the high demand this year, there will be enough of the vaccine to meet residents' needs.

Matthews muses the higher interest in the vaccine could be a combination of the province's ad campaign, the resurgence of H1N1 cases or easy access to flu shots at clinics and pharmacies.

She says compared to this time last year, the province has seen 300,000 more flu shots distributed.

Toronto Public Health says interest has spiked this month. But Associate Medical Officer of Health Dr. Monica Hau says there haven't been long line-ups at clinics because people have been making appointments online.
