Marisa Grunder, 27 of Wilton, Iowa, is given a shot during trials of an H1N1 vaccine at the University of Iowa Health Center on August 11, 2009 in Iowa City, Iowa.

San Diego County has run out of its supply of swine flu vaccine, according to county health officials.

Health officials say high demand and limited availability are to blame for the shortage. The county is expected to receive additional H1N1 vaccine in the coming weeks and months, but there's no information on an exact date.

Vaccinations may still be available from private providers. Residents are urged to contact their primary care physicians to get the H1N1 vaccine.
