  • With Flu Spreading State Health Officials Urge Flu Shots

The flu is starting to spread across Iowa, and it's now caused its second death in the state for this flu season.

In Pierce County, where hospitalizations are increasing each week, the latest patients were between 60 and 90 years old and had underlying health conditions that increased the risk of death from influenza. People at risk of complications include children younger than five years old, adults over 65, pregnant women and people with heart or lung disease, diabetes or weakened a immune system, according to health officials.

Kelleher said: "The best protection for people from the flu virus is the flu vaccine, yet every year many people in at risk groups fail to get vaccinated and so put themselves at risk of serious illness or even death". Although CDC officials recommend that everyone 6 months and older receive the flu vaccine by the end of October to prevent getting sick this season, as of early November of 2016, about 60% of the United States population still had not received the seasonal flu shot.

In Nova Scotia there have been 25 confirmed cases of the flu.

"The flu is definitely in our community and has been for a couple weeks".

The flu vaccine can keep you from getting the flu, make the illness less severe if you do get it, and keep you from spreading the virus to family and other people.
