At least 16 people in Ventura County have died in flu-related deaths this season, public health officials said Thursday as they urged vaccinations.
- A spike in flu cases in NY and across the country has health officials urging people to get influenza vaccine if they haven't done so already.
The number of Californians under 65 who've died of the flu has jumped to 42, compared with nine at the same time previous year, state officials said Friday.
Healthcare providers are required to report cases of the flu in patients hospitalized in the intensive care unit or deaths associated with the flu among people younger than 65.
The peak of flu season typically lasts until March, so it's not too late to get a flu shot, doctors say.

Up to half of the children who die from flu have no known medical condition that would have put them at higher risk.
The state is also reporting a number of influenza outbreaks in long-term care facilities, with 49 outbreaks reported this season.
"If the significant percentage of this population hasn't been vaccinated you have a greater number of individuals that are susceptible to influenza", Echols said. But the severity of this flu season isn't expected to be quite as bad as the 2014-15 season, during which vaccine effectiveness was very low and there were about 700,000 hospitalizations.
"People should do everything they can still to reduce the risk of infection, including getting the flu vaccine", Jernigan said. "You're going to get better faster and you won't be spreading it around".
"There has been a very rapid increase in the numbers of people coming in to see their doctors".
The release says the predominant strain of flu in the state is Influenza A (H3N2). "Additionally, MSDH has received reports from hospitals across the state that are experiencing increased admissions to ICUs and increased visits to emergency departments which have hospitals operating at full capacity".
The most recent deaths were reported last week.
Influenza is a respiratory illness, and symptoms come on suddenly and can include fever, headache, fatigue, body aches, coughing or sore throat and nasal congestion.
Make sure you cover your cough, clean your hands and you contain your germs by staying at home when you are ill.
