Lufkin and Nacogdoches officials react to flu season

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Center for Disease Control has now released more numbers as flu season comes to an end.

The newly released report states that 105 children died during this flu season. The deaths occurred in 36 states. That is well above the 34 deaths from last year.

Officials with the Angelina County Health District say the season for the county wasn't as severe as expected.

"January is more our peak after Christmas, and we saw it early this year but probably the past 6 weeks, it has declined and gone down," said Disease Surveillance Specialist, Deanna Andrade.

Medical experts say they still are giving out flu shots until they run out or when their vaccines expire in June.

Officials in Nacogdoches say they also had an average flu season with no serious incidents.
