Nashville hospitals get injectable H1N1 vaccine

The Tennessean, October 15, 2009
Nashville hospitals have started to receive shipments of the injectable version of the H1N1 vaccine, which can be taken by people who aren't eligible for the nasal spray. Baptist Hospital received 600 of the 3,000 shot doses it ordered, and Vanderbilt University Medical Center also got about 2,500 doses. Like the H1N1 FluMist nasal spray, the shot will be given to healthcare workers first. Any remaining doses probably will go to hospitalized patients.
