GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Division of Public Health has confirmed the first flu-related death of the season in Sussex County.

Health officials tell local media that the 74-year-old woman was a resident of a long-term care facility and had multiple underlying conditions.

The woman’s death brings the total number of flu-related deaths in the state this flu season to three.

Health officials say it’s not too late to get a flu vaccine. The vaccines take two weeks to take effect, and the season hasn’t yet hit its peak.

Flu vaccines are still available at DPH clinics located within State Service Centers. A list of locations and times is available at https://flu.delaware.gov/ .
