Another death and more than 200 additional hospitalizations from flu are being reported in Oklahoma in the past week. Tony Sellars with the State Health Department says the older population continues to be the hardest hit group. Even though it’s peak flu season, he emphasizes getting a shot will still help. Although the number of flu cases are climbing, they remain well below last year’s record season.
Totals from this flu season statewide are now 907 hospitalizations and 25 deaths…the majority in both categories in Northeast Oklahoma.
