The University of Kansas has canceled all but one of its planned H1N1 flu vaccine clinics because of a shortage of doses.

The remaining clinic will be held Nov. 6 and restricted to students who meet certain criteria. The university initially scheduled four clinics and will offer more when it receives more doses of the vaccine.

For now, the university says it has only 500 doses of H1N1 flu vaccine available.

Also Tuesday, the university said it was canceling its one remaining seasonal flu clinic after running out of vaccine for that virus. Nearly 700 doses have already been administered to students, faculty, staff and retirees, and 800 more doses have been ordered.
