"The reporting of these unfortunate circumstances with otherwise healthy people having such bad outcomes will stimulate more people wanting to get their flu shot", he said.

Twelve of the 16 new flu-related deaths were individuals ages 65 and older, while the other four were ages 50 to 64.

According to hospitalization numbers from the Oklahoma State Department of Health, residents in Oklahoma and Tulsa counties accounted for the most flu hospitalizations in the state.

Numbers from the CDC show 40,600 confirmed cases of the flu in Missouri since fall of past year, and 33 flu-related deaths.

The widely circulating flu strain, H3N2, can be detrimental to children and the elderly. But McDonald says the flu shot does cover other strains of influenza that are present.

The state tracks flu deaths only among those younger than 65, because health officials say it's a more accurate measure of the severity of a flu season. These vaccines are recommended for everyone 6 months and older. The majority of flu patients who were sick enough be hospitalized - and a majority of those who died from the flu - had not received the vaccine.

"Flu can cause death", Evans said.

Nationally, cases of seemingly health people dying suddenly from the flu have captured national attention. Nearly three weeks later, they have yet to take it down. CDC data suggests the flu trend in Missouri might have reached a peak.

"We haven't experienced a significant drop, so we'll have to probably take it on a week-by-week basis", said the hospital's chair of ER medicine Dr. Tammi Thomas.
