Florida's first flu death of the season is a child

Flu shot debate heats up following first flu related death

The unidentified child was otherwise healthy before getting the flu, according to the Florida Department of Health's Bureau of Epidemiology.

Florida health officials say a child is the first to die during this year's flu season.

One-third said that the flu shot didn't work.

The survey shows 56 per cent of Edmonton residents plan to get a flu shot this year, and 37 per cent of those who do not plan to get a vaccination believe a flu shot is not effective or only effective for previous strains.

The first of a few confirmed cases in the area was reported in the last couple of weeks, but there is no large increase in cases at this time, said Chris Steward of Sedgwick County's Division of Health.

Overnight, Senator Cormann said the government deplored racism of any kind. "The associations of the language were not picked up".

State officials said those outbreaks did not cause the child's death.

A new survey suggests that many children may not be getting the potentially life-saving flu shot due to their parents' misconceptions about the safety and importance of vaccines. "It's important that we deal with the science and the facts", CBS News medical contributor Dr. Tara Narula said.

30 percent of parents feel flu vaccines are a conspiracy. The other was an unspecified flu-like disease. She also said that the flu shot is free for anyone six months or older.

During the 2017-18 flu season - the deadliest flu season in four decades - 80,000 Americans died, including 180 children. Rock suggested that your overall health is key to fighting off viruses, saying that making sure your immunizations are up to date, eat healthily, get enough rest and covering up your cough in your arm, not your hand are all good steps to help prevent spreading or contracting the flu.
