From the (Augusta, Maine) Morning Sentinel:
Mainers seeking flu vaccine in Canada
Mainers unable to find flu shots at home because of a massive shortage this year are looking to Canada for the vaccine, but it's unclear how many will be successful in their quest.

The United States is short nearly half its anticipated supply this year because the license of Chiron Corp., one of two manufacturers for the country's vaccine, was pulled this month. As residents face restrictions on who can get the shot, resulting in long lines at some clinics and the cancellation of others, some are hoping they can obtain the shot by crossing the border.
