Oklahoma has set a state record for flu deaths. So far 153 people have died during the 2017-18 flu season, which breaks a record from last year. The Oklahoma State Department of Health began tracking flu deaths per season in 2009.
Health Officials say the H3N3 virus or Flu A has been particularly harmful to those 65 and older and those younger than five years old. And, the Flu B strain is increasingly worrying health authorities.
Health Department spokesperson, Tony Sellars, says Oklahomans still need to get vaccinated.
