Health officials: Brevard Co. woman dies of flu

Posted: Updated:

MELBOURNE, Fla. (AP) - Brevard County Health Department officials say a woman in her 30s has died of the flu.

Florida Today reports the woman died Sunday at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

Director Heidar Heshmati says two others - a pregnant woman in her 30s and a 62-year-old man - are on life support due to influenza. Heshmati says the woman refused to get the flu vaccination.

Last week, Brevard County health officials issued a report warning of an uptick in flue activity. They urged anyone over 6 months old to get the flu vaccine.

Heshmati did not release the names of woman who died, or the two patients on life support.
