Field Day Food Fun Games Health Oficials Report First Pediactric Flu Death Of The Season The Mississippi State De- partment of Health (MSDH) recently reported the first confirmed pediatric influenza death for the 2014-2015 flu season. The death occurred in an individual who lived in Central Mississippi. Pedi- atric deaths are defined as deaths of individuals under 18 years of age. Including this reported death, there have been a to- tal of 14 pediatric flu deaths reported in Mississippi since podiatric flu deaths became reportable during the 2007- 2008 flu season. "This is another reminder that influenza infections can lead to serious complications and in some cases, death," said MSDH State Epidemi- ologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs. "Peak flu season itl Mississip- pi typically runs from Janu- ary through March. We know the virus is still very active and is still causing infections throughout the state." Dobbs said the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent in- fection, and vaccination can reduce the risk of complica- tions and death. '~t this point in the sea- son, it's extremely important to stay home when you're sick so you don't infect oth- ers. Also be sure to practice good hygiene such as cover- ing your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and washing your hands frequently," said Dobbs. "All persons 6 months of age and older should receive flu vac- cination and it is still recom- mended as long as flu trans- mission is ongoing." According to the Centers for Disease Control and Pre- vention (CDC), up to an esti- mated 49,000 people die and more than 200,000 are hospi- talized each year because of the flu. In Mississippi, only podi- atric flu deaths are report- able. Individual flu cases are not reported to MSDH, but the agency monitors flu ac- tivity through the Influenza- Like Illness (ILI) Sentinel Surveillance System, made up of healthcare providers in Mississippi who report the TOWN OF IC UTILITY PAYMENTI CUSTOMERS CAN NOW PAY TOWN OF WOODVILLE UTILITY BILLS ONLINE AT THE WEBSITE CUSTOMERS CAN PAY BY E-CHECK, DEBIT CARD OR CREDIT CARD DISCLAIMER...
