    Seattle-based ferry service ends its scenic flu shot cruises to Canada

    SEATTLE (AP) -- A ferry service that has been offering scenic cruises to Canada plus a flu shot ended the package deal Thursday.

    The Canadian clinic that had been providing the vaccine can no longer guarantee a supply, said Darrell Bryan, executive vice-president of Clipper Navigation.

    "Clipper understands and respects that Canada's first priority for allocation of the flu vaccine is to its own citizens," Bryan said.

    "Although we are pleased to have been able to help many American senior citizens and other high-risk people, without a guaranteed supply of vaccine available ... it would be irresponsible for us to continue to sell the flu shots."

    The ferry service began offering the "flu cruises" Oct. 21 as a response to the shortage of flu vaccine in the United States.

    For $105 US, a discount off the normal round-trip fare of $115, hundreds of people took the 2{-hour ride from Seattle to Victoria, and got a flu shot at the terminal on the Canadian side.
