I watched Channel 5 news this morning on the Flu outbreak and decided to get the shot. I walked in to CVS and it just so happened that they had a new shipment this morning of the shots. They had run out yesterday.

I called my doctor yesterday and found out they were out of the flu shot, so I went to the CVS in Foothill Ranch this morning and got one of their last shots. They said the 24-hour CVS down the street from them is out, as well as the CVS on La Paz.
