While the nation is experiencing a shortage of tetanus vaccinations, supplies of the drug varied at local health agencies, with most officials saying they had adequate supplies.
Ray Ghougassian, a pharmacist at Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District in Brawley, said while he anticipates a shortage of tetanus shots, a supply of tetanus/diphtheria combination shots could be used should tetanus supplies be depleted.
As of Tuesday, Ghougassian said he had two vials of tetanus shots left.
Yvonne Smith, Imperial County public health director, said her agency had "ample supplies" of the shots after it conducted an inventory check Tuesday.
The situation was different at the El Centro Regional Medical Center, where pharmacist Danny Tirado said the hospital was experiencing a shortage of tetanus and tetanus/diphtheria supplies.
