New Mexico Health Officals Urge Flu Vaccinations

New Mexico Health Secretary Kathy Kunkel received her flu shot as the state kicked off its campaign to get more people vaccinated this season. Kunkel and Deputy Secretary Abinash Achrekar visited a public health office in Albuquerque on October 22. They talked about the importance of annual vaccinations. Kunkel says flu can be fatal if left untreated.

More than 200 New Mexicans died of flu and flu-related pneumonia during the 2018-2019 flu season. Earlier this month, the Health Department confirmed the state's first cases of the season. Those included one in Bernalillo County in which a 90-year-old patient died. Officials say young children and older adults are the most vulnerable. The flu season typically runs through the end of April.
