A fourth person has died from flu in Oklahoma. This fatality is in the northwestern part of the state. The other three were in eastern Oklahoma. All are in the older population category, with one between 50 and 64 and the others 65 or older. State Epidemiologist Laurence Burnsed says those old and young and with compromised immune systems should definitely get shots, but it’s recommended for everyone six months and older.
There have been 168 hospitalizations in the state so far this flu season.
