The state Department of Health has logged more than 200 flu-related hospitalizations this season. The U.S. <a href="http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/mmwr_wk/wk_cvol.html" target="_blank">Centers for Disease Control and Prevention</a> estimate that 36,000 people die every year from the flu. So far in Utah, there are no confirmed deaths, but state health officials only track flu-related deaths in children. Health department epidemiologist David Jackson says vaccines are still available.
