Flu season is about to begin, and the threat of the H1N1 virus has health departments here in the east preparing with vaccines.

Dr. John Morrow, the Health Director for the Pitt County Health Department says the vaccine for the H1N1 virus should be available for the public next month.

Morrow says the arrival of the vaccine depends on when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has enough vaccine produced to be distributed nationwide.

While the seasonal flu vaccine is available now, health officials can't say for sure what specific day they'll get the vaccine and how much they'll have. Here's a list of when area Heath Departments think they'll get the vaccine.

BEAUFORT COUNTY- Middle of October.

CARTERET COUNTY- Middle of October.

CRAVEN COUNTY- Didn't get back to us

LENOIR COUNTY- End of October or the first week of November.

MARTIN COUNTY- Middle of October.

ONSLOW COUNTY- Middle to the end of October.

PITT COUNTY- Late September or the middle of October.

    Tim, what makes you the expert? You have no idea what you are talking about! We have come a long way since 1976. Get your fact strait before you post.

    DO NOT GET THE SWINE FLU SHOT! It has 1 million times more SQUALENE than was in the anthrax shots during the first Gulf War. Squalene, when injected, attacks your immune system, causes brain swelling, nervous disorders. Gulf War Syndrome, research it. Google "squalene". You are signing your own death warrant. The shot also has mercury and formaldihyde. During the 1976 swine flu, the deaths were mostly from the shot. check out flucase dot com.
