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.
