Flu season here; health officials urge vaccine
from Chicago Tribune
Flu season has officially begun, and though the risk of catching the disease is low this early in the season, health officials emphasize that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu shot as soon as possible. "Now is a great time to get vaccinated because we don't know when the flu season will hit" in earnest, said Julie Morita, chief medical officer for the Chicago Department of Public Health. Although there has been a slight delay in the distribution of the vaccine, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there is enough vaccine to go around. Manufacturers anticipate that most of their flu vaccine will be distributed by the end of October.
