BALLWIN — A faulty thermostat in a refrigerator is being blamed for the loss of 1,800 doses of H1N1 virus vaccinations in the Rockwood School District in suburban St. Louis.
School officials told KSDK, NBC affiliate in St. Louis, the doses were lost last month. About 2,500 new doses of the flu mist were expected to arrive on Friday.
District spokeswoman Kim Cranston said 1,000 of the district's highest risk children have already been vaccinated. She said future doses for the district will be stored at a hospital.
