It's important to note that the state health department only tracks flu deaths in pregnant women and children.

Lexington's deadly flu season has already eclipsed last season's totals, and health officials are reporting additional cases. In 2009, 15 were reported.

No appointments are needed to receive a flu shot at any county health department. No appointments are necessary.

It is common during any flu season to have a peak of influenza A cases - typically the more severe flu - and then a later, smaller peak of influenza B cases, which is generally milder. Last week saw the fewest number of new cases in Blair since the week ending January 20.

As of February 9, 10 people died from the flu at UT Medical Center in the 2017-18 flu season.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report said 43 states reported heavy flu patient traffic, the same as the previous week. The flu season lasts from October through May, so we still have several more months to go. It can cause more inflammation than other influenza strains, which puts extra stress on the immune system and it takes longer to fight off. They say it doesn't just protect an individual, it protects the larger community because it helps prevent the flu from spreading.

Doctors don't fully understand what about the flu might lead to heart attacks in some people.

"But, it does look like we're out of the woods", he said.

Itskowitz and Yealy agree that it's not too late to get a flu shot.

DSHS reported that the flu activity has increased in the Amarillo Health Service Region (Health Service Region 1).
