Flu-Related Deaths in Texas Rise to More Than 2,300
It doesn't appear as though the flu season is getting any better. According to a report fromNBC affiliate WOAI, more than 2,300 flu-related deaths have been reported in Texas since October.
Flu-related deaths throughout the country have dominated headlines and have resulted in an increase in the amount of people seeking a flu shot. This week, a Georgia teenager who initially tested negative for the flu passed away because of the flu.
According to the report from WOAI, a spokesperson with the Texas Department of State Health Services said most of the flu-related deaths in Texas have been those aged 65 and older.
There is still time to get you flu shot according to experts, and that may not be a bad idea since there aren't many signs of the flu slowing down.
