COLUMBIA – The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control has been notified of the state’s first flu-associated death of the season.
“Tragically, a woman from Dorchester County has become our first lab-confirmed, influenza-associated death of the season,” Dr. Linda Bell, state epidemiologist, said Nov. 7.
“We are in the early stages of our state’s flu season. It’s important to get vaccinated now. The vaccine takes about two weeks to build up your body’s protection against the virus. Vaccination is by far the best way to prevent the spread of the flu.”
