An adult male in his late 30's is the first reported fatality linked to influenza for this influenza season, Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health and state public health officer, announced today. "This death is a somber reminder that the flu can be a serious and even deadly disease," Chapman said. The man was from Kern County. "Since the flu season can last through May, it is not too late to get a flu vaccine," Chapman said. " There is plenty of flu vaccine available."
