Pa. says its bad flu-season has 'peaked'

The number of flu-related hospitalizations and deaths since last fall have been off-the-charts high in Oklahoma, which is the reason for the move to offer the immunizations at no cost.

"We strongly encourage everyone to continue practicing the important preventive measures we have been promoting including staying home when you're sick, calling your doctor at the first signs of flu-like illness, washing your hands frequently, and covering coughs and sneezes", Rattay said.

PHOENIX - This year's flu season has been one of the worst in modern day history - and it is not over yet.

"These numbers reflect only laboratory-confirmed cases and the actual number of flu cases in DE is likely much higher", the statement said. Since October, 23,324 people have been hospitalized for influenza-associated complications. Last week, 5 percent of physician visits nationwide were for flu symptoms.

Officials said Monday that the most recently reported deaths all involved New Castle County residents with underlying health conditions.

Both of the children who died had not been vaccinated against the flu and were infected with influenza B viruses, which most commonly infect children, Haselow said.
