                        The Imperial County Public Health Department announced today the first death this flu season from complications due to influenza. The individual, a toddler, was positive for influenza B and passed away this month. It is unknown if the child had been vaccinated. Dr. Stephen Munday, County Health Officer stated, “Our thoughts are with the family that has been affected by the recent death of a child due to influenza. This is a sad reminder of how serious Influenza can be and that anyone can get sick with the flu. It is important to remember that it is not too late to get a flu shot and vaccine continues to be available in the community.” All persons six months of age and older, including health-care personnel, should receive a flu shot now if they have not yet received one this flu season. Flu continues to circulate at higher levels in Imperial County and flu activity is widespread statewide.
