Auburn University has run out of COVID-19 vaccine doses and is encouraging those who have not already received a first dose to look elsewhere, according to an email sent to faculty and staff.
The University said in the email that it will administer the remainder of its vaccines by the end of this week.
"We have requested additional first and second dose allotments from the Alabama Department of Public Health," the email said. "COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be suspended until more first and second doses are received."
The University did not state when more vaccine doses will be made available but suggested that some people might want to try to get a vaccine from some other place.
"Given that vaccine supplies might remain limited, you might want to register for other vaccine distribution programs that are available locally," the email said.
According to the email, new first-dose appointments have not been scheduled since late January because of a perceived lack of supplies.
Now, even second-does appointments have been suspended until the University receives another shipment.
