The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) recently confirmed the first influenza-associated pediatric death of the 2018-2019 flu season.

According to the MDHHS, a child in Osceola County died after catching the flu.

The CDC said there's still time for all unvaccinated persons over the age of 6 months to get the seasonal flu vaccine.

Health official say the flu vaccine is safe - and that it's the best way to prevent against getting the flu and can also reduce the severity of flu illness.

In Michigan, two children died past year due to flu-related complications.

The CDC's computer game starts in Philadelphia on September 28, 1918, amid the U.S.'s most deadly flu pandemic.

The state health commissioner has declared influenza prevalent in the state, triggering a five-year-old law requiring that health workers not vaccinated against the flu wear surgical masks while around patients. "I encourage all New Yorkers older than six months to get their influenza vaccine as soon as possible".

People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, and lung or heart disease and those who are immuno-suppressed. It's not now clear where in the state the child was from or if he or she had received the flu vaccine.

There's nearly no reason why someone shouldn't get a flu shot, she added, and it's not just about keeping you healthy, but preventing the spread of influenza to other New Yorkers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported Influenza activity in the United States is increasing, as of December 15, 2018. If you do still get the flu you're 60 percent less likely to need treatment. There have been 923 patients hospitalized and one child died. And as we head into peak flu season, the vaccine looks good. It takes two weeks for immunity to develop.
