Calhoun County's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Gregory Harrington - an infectious disease specialist with Bronson Battle Creek - tells WBCK a recent confirmed case of Bubonic Plague in Michigan is highly unusual. Harrington also says the flu presents more of a public health risk than the Plague.

Harrington expressed optimism for this year's inoculation against Influenza, saying last year's late strain that wasn't included in the flu shot has been identified and included in this year's version. He also expressed optimism for a new kind of flu shot that's likely a few years away.
