HAVERTOWN, Pa. -

Flu shots are hard to come by these days at Havertown's Care STAT clinic.  They ran out of vaccines on Saturday, due to record high demand on their busiest day ever.

"As of last night we had 123 flu vaccines," said owner Dr. Jonathan Gusdorff. 

"Right now we have 1 or 2 left in our refrigerator."

They were gone not long after FOX29 arrived to tape our report.  We caught up with Chris Herbert and his wife, two of the last people able to get shots.

"It's all on the news," Herbert said, "so we decided to get our flu shots today."

Dr. Gusdorff said he will be turning people away until Monday when they have a fresh shipment of 150 vaccines.

More will be ordered as needed.

The clinic is able to access 9,000 vaccines care of its supplier.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
