Swine Flu Death In Eastern Carolina

We will be working Tuesday to learn more about the death of a person in Wilson that is accredited to the swine flu.

A patient at Wilson Medical Center died over the weekend from the H1N1 strain of the flu, but they haven't been identified, according to the Wilson Daily Times.

The death is the second person from Wilson County to die from swine flu, it also killed a man from Lenoir County. The federal government is upping the call for vaccinations again, saying more doses are available, and getting vaccinated will help ward off a third wave of the swine flu.

Many county health departments have started offering the H1N1 vaccine to everyone, not just those considered high risk.
