Two children have died from the flu this week in Florida, bringing the number of pediatric flu deaths in the state this season to seven.

One of the children was not vaccinated, the other was too young to get a vaccine, health officials said.

This now brings the number of flu-related child deaths to seven so far this season.

We are in week five of the flu season and the Department of Health says there were notable flu increases all across the state and we’re expecting those for several more weeks.

If you begin to feel sick, go ahead and seek medical attention quickly within 48 hours.
