Death Toll From Flu Rises To 35 In Ventura County


The death toll from the flu continues to grow on the South Coast.

35 deaths have now been reported in Ventura County from influenza since last October. Most of the deaths have been among the county’s older residents, with only six of the victims under the age of 65.

Ventura County Public Health officials say with different strains of the flu affecting people, it is still important to get a flu shot if you haven’t received one yet.
