Second Del. flu-related death prompts prevention tips from health officials

Toronto's flu season is underway but it's too soon to tell how bad it will be says an expert

Children under 5, adults over 65, pregnant women and people with health conditions like heart or lung disease are considered especially vulnerable to serious complications resulting from the flu, though "even young, healthy people can sometimes experience serious complications", the county said.

There have been 12 overall for the season, which officially began October 1 and lasts through March 31, although some seasons begin early and can linger into late April to mid-May. The victim was an 83-year-old New Castle County woman living in a nursing home.

Another death was an individual between the ages of 25 and 49.

For up to date information on the flu in the state, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Health's flu website. People at higher risk of severe disease who show flu symptoms should contact their medical provider.

Moreno recommends that all individuals six months of age and older be vaccinated against influenza.

With the holiday season comes the flu.
