Where do the local doctors get their annual flue vaccine?

My wife doesn't want to get her annual flu shot from the Mexican Health department, she wants a private doctor.

I would think private doctors get their vaccine from the Mexican covernment and not directly from the manufacturer.

Anyone agree or disagree?

Thanks.

Ask at the clinic or the doctor's office offering it.  They will tell you.  I asked the doctor last year and he showed us the box it came in and said he had to purchase it through a private company.  Last year there was a shortage of flu shots around here, doesn't seem to be an issue this year.  The prices here aren't far out of line with this chart.
