S.C. Flu Death Total Rises to 106

The death toll this flu season continues to grow in South Carolina.

22 more people have died in the state within the last week. That's six more than the entire flu season last year.

The state's Department of Health and Environmental Control has released this week's latest flu report. The number of deaths in the state has risen to 106. DHEC reports that there is widespread flu activity for the eighth week.

There are still another three weeks left of peak flu season according to the CDC. 

DHEC says the flu shot is the best protection against the flu. They are waiving administrative fees that some pay for a flu shot at its public health clinics.
