Pharmacy on Langley-Surrey border has flu vaccine

If you really want to have a flu shot, one local pharmacy says they still have plenty of stock.

Surlang Pharmacy pharmacist Bob Sangha confirmed he has “a few weeks’ worth” of the vaccine available.

Surlang Pharmacy recently expanded their flu vaccine service from every Friday to daily. Customers can drop by for their flu shot from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. any day. Walk-ins are welcome, no appointment is needed. Shots are administered by a licensed pharmacist.

Most pharmacies, clinics and doctors’ offices in Langley are reporting they do not have any flu shots available. The province ordered 1.4 million doses this season and have said those doses are all but used now. The province was expected to order another 20,000 doses to handle the demand. The last report indicated that the H1N1 virus has killed five people in B.C. this flu season.

Surlang Pharmacy is located at 105-19475 Fraser Highway.
