OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma State Department of Health announced Thursday that more people have lost their lives with flu-related symptoms this season.
According to OSDH, six people have now died.
More than 130 hospitalizations have been reported statewide since September 1, 2018.
The Tulsa Health Department encourages all individuals six months and older to get a flu vaccination.
“Individuals who receive the flu vaccine are not only protecting themselves but also those around them, including babies too young to receive a vaccination,” said Tulsa Health Department Executive Director Dr. Bruce Dart. “We still have flu vaccine available, so if you haven’t already, now is the time to get your flu vaccination.”
