    Washington reports first flu death of 2018-19 season
    by KATU StaffTuesday, October 23rd 2018


    PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. – Flu season is starting up in the Pacific Northwest, and health officials in Washington say they have confirmed the state’s first flu death of the 2018-19 season.


    The patient, a Pierce County man in his 40s, died on Monday from flu-related complications. He had chronic health concerns that increased his health risk, according to the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department.

    “This death is a reminder of the importance of early vaccination, especially for those with diabetes, obesity, asthma, and other risk factors for influenza-associated complications,” said Public Health Nurse Matthew Rollosson. “Immunization against influenza not only protects you, it also reduces the risk of influenza in the community.”

    Last year, 296 people in Washington died from the flu.

                      Another Tri-Citian has died from the flu

                      Medical experts insist washing your hands is the time-tested method of flu prevention, right behind flu shots. One simple hand washing tip may keep you from catching the bug. Travis Long
