Officials say the shipment could be delayed 4 to 8 weeks.

The department had planned to make the flu vaccine available during their regularly scheduled immunization clinics in Utica and Rome.

Meanwhile, the Health Department is urging residents to get a flu shot wherever the vaccine is available.
