Young father loses battle to H1N1 virus, family warns others to get flu shot
GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
"Health officials have confirmed that two Gregg County residents have died from the H1N1 virus, which was just confirmed as one of the "mystery illnesses" in Montgomery County, near Houston.
Starting Thursday, physicians are being advised to give their patients Tamiflu if they are showing flu-like symptoms. The good news is that the H1N1 virus is included in this year's flu shot, but so far, it looks like those who have died from the virus have not had the vaccination. "
"Jeri said her son was eventually diagnosed with H1N1 and had not received his flu shot."
