Default Quadravalent influenza vaccine

Anyone else seeing a shortage of the quadravalent killed injectable this year?

All I am finding in Flumist in quadravalent.

Local phenomenon or US wide.

I got Sanofis Fluzone Quadrivalent at a local public health flu clinic two weeks ago. First time I have had a "reaction" afterwards. Lightheadeness, wheezing, little bit of itching.

Not saying it was the shot but symptoms came in 24 hour proximity.
