More Mississippians Sick with Flu

ATLANTA, GA (Ben Caxton) — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting high levels of flu-like illness in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina, and Texas but the highest levels for the week ending November 16th were in Mississippi. Doctors report seeing lots of patients and travel and family gatherings can contribute to the flu spreading. CDC officials say the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent flu and its complications, and it’s not too late to get vaccinated. So far in this flu season nationwide, four children have died from flu-associated illness.
