While an anthrax attack in San Joaquin County is unlikely, county health officials say it's hardly impossible. That's why the county's Public Health Services department will meet Wednesday with representatives from local cities to talk about how vaccinations, inoculations and medicine would be distributed to the public during such an emergency.

How to stop the spread of diseases such as pandemic influenza or smallpox will be discussed as well, said Roberto Alaniz, a deputy director of health promotion and administration for public health. Pandemic influenza refers to a mutated, much stronger version of a virus similar to the common, annual flu bug, and one that the public has difficulty adjusting to.
