Dr. Julie Morita, Medical Director of the Chicago Department of Public Health Immunization Program, reminds us that "diseases that have been practically eliminated in the US are just a plane ride away, so while we are seeing near record low cases of some vaccine preventable diseases here, the viruses and bacteria that cause them still exist and are a threat."

"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.
Last year, one person in Chicago died from the flu, Morita said. More than 100 children died nationwide. The H1N1 strain of the flu hit hardest. That strain tends to affect healthy, young adults at a higher proportion than other strains.
"We are doing better and better every year," Morita said of messages urging people to get vaccinated. "People who seem reluctant are young, healthy adults who don't think they need to get the flu vaccine."
Although there has been a slight delay in the distribution of the vaccine, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Department of Public Health, there is enough vaccine to go around. Manufacturers anticipate that most of their flu vaccine will be distributed by the end of October.
Every year, the Chicago Department of Public Health works with 60 to 70 clinics that provide the vaccine in Chicago to anyone who wants it, regardless of whether they have insurance, Morita said. The clinics started vaccinating people in September and will run through the beginning of December, according to Morita.
