147 deaths in California so far this flu season. The health department only tracks the deaths of those under age 65, so it could even be higher if seniors are counted as well. And in the past week I've heard about the deaths of two relatively young people from flu.
The woman in the first story was 47. The other gentleman was 37. Too young.
I know not everyone agrees with getting flu shots. This is really to say, take care of yourselves, everyone.
