Influenza Claims A Pediatric Victim In Yuma

January 30, 2014

Arizona has recorded its first pediatric influenza death of the year in Yuma County.  Diana Gomez is the Yuma County health director.

“We can’t discuss a lot due to privacy laws, but I can tell you that the child had underlying medical conditions," Gomez said.

Gomez said it is not too late to for anyone over six months of age to get a flu shot. She did say it will take about two weeks for the vaccine to become effective.
