Title: Texas Teacher Dies of Flu
Post by: 2Vermont on February 10, 2018, 01:04:25 PM
Just heard about this.....

It seems that none of the reports state whether she had the flu shot earlier this year. I'm wondering whether she DID and it's not being covered because...well...that wouldn't be good advertising for the flu shot that they tell us we NEED to get.

Anyone here about this?

According to The Dallas Morning News:

Quote
A special education teacher from Central Texas is on life support at a Dallas hospital after she contracted two strains of the flu.

The virus caused Crystal Whitley, 35, to develop sepsis, pneumonia and MRSA, a type of staph infection that is resistant to several antibiotics, WFAA-TV (Channel 8) reports.

The Mullin woman got the flu shot in October after giving birth to her son, has no underlying medical conditions and stays physically active. But two days after she was diagnosed with the flu Jan. 22, she was airlifted from Mullin, which is about 100 miles west of Waco, to Baylor Scott & White in Dallas on a ventilator.

This is actually another teacher...but interesting nonetheless.  So much for taking those flu shots!
