Flu season may play a role in kidney failure deaths

NJ Department of Health Reports Second Pediatric Flu Death

According to the Illinois Department of Public Health, 312 cases of H1N1 have been reported in the state compared to only 38 cases of H3N2.

The girl, who had not received a flu vaccination and dealt with underlying medical issues, died February 12.

On Thursday, the health department announced that since the flu season began, 31 people have died in Oklahoma from the flu and there have been more than 1,200 hospitalizations.

"H3N2 Influenza A was very, very prevalent past year", Schmidt explains. "This can be very necessary that folks get vaccinated as a result of influenza will be lethal".

"These deaths are tragic and are a reminder of the dangers of flu and the importance of flu vaccination, our best protection against illness".

The teen's death is the second pediatric fatal flu-related case in the state for the 2018-2019 season, health officials said. Several health departments still have the flu vaccine available such as Southern Seven and Williamson-Franklin bi-county health departments.

Those anxious about the flu or feel that might be at risk, should speak with their doctor about getting the flu shot or other preventative measures.
