Image
U.S. influenza activity remains low, but Los Angeles County confirmed its first death -- a woman with an underlying medical condition, an official says.

Dr. Jonathan E. Fielding, director of public health and health officer, says the woman resided in the San Fernando Valley and the particular strain of influenza was identified as type B.

"The Department of Public Health encourages everyone six months of age and older to get their flu vaccination now," Fielding says in a statement.
