From the Vancouver Sun:
Special flu shot clinic set up in Vancouver this weekend for Americans
So many Americans are cross-border shopping for flu shots that the Vancouver health authority has set up a one-day clinic for Americans only.

Americans are flooding into clinics along the U.S.-B.C. border -- including one at the Vancouver International Airport -- looking for the shots that have become increasingly scarce in the U.S.

And while Canadian officials have repeatedly said the U.S. demand will not be allowed to impact Canadian supplies, the owner of two B.C. clinics urged Canadians -- especially those who are not considered at high risk of getting the flu -- not to delay getting their shots if they want one.
