Frome the Washington Times:
U.S. citizens flock to Canada for flu shots
Mary Buffamonti called her doctor in Tonawanda, N.Y., this week and found out that she couldn't get a flu shot.

So she crossed the Canadian border and went to a clinic in Fort Erie, Ontario, just across the Niagara River from Buffalo, N.Y.

'That was the main thing, the shortage. I didn't know if I could get a shot or not," the 77-year-old Mrs. Buffamonti said. Americans are traveling to Canada for an injection of flu vaccine and a shot at some peace of mind.
