Three flu deaths in Los Angeles County and another in Orange County have health officials singing from the "get your flu shot" songbook once again, according to CBS Los Angeles. In addition to the recent deaths, 10 people under the age of 65 (5 are children) have been recently hospitalized in intensive care for severe flu cases. Health officials are letting area residents know that it's "not too late to get vaccinated." You can Find a Flu Shot in your area if you're so inclined.
