BILLINGS - Concern over the swine flu is creating a big demand for seasonal flu vaccines this year. Local pharmacies are responding by giving out shots early. Walgreens pharmacists say starting September 8, they'll begin handing out the seasonal flu vaccine. Medical experts believe more people this fall compared to last year will get the vaccine because of swine flu. However officials want to remind people the season flu and swine flu are different strains and the seasonal vaccine is useless against fighting swine flu. Billings CVS stores say they're not sure when they'll have the vaccine available.
