Health Division Continues To Encourage Flu Vaccinations

Pontiac, Mich. — Oakland County Health Division (OCHD) continues to strongly encourage residents to take action and get vaccinated against flu in the wake of two adult flu-associated deaths in Oakland County. OCHD has received reports of over 1,300 confirmed flu cases since the season officially began on October 7, 2018.

“My heart goes out to the families,” said Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson. “This is an unfortunate reminder that influenza can be a very serious illness, especially for those at higher risk of complications.”
