H1N1 Flu Spreads Across the South

As the H1N1 flu spreads its way across the south, many are beginning to panic. Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama have been particularly affected according to the Centers for Disease Control. One of the biggest fears for many every winter is getting the flu, which is why so many seek to get flu shot vaccinations before flu season approaches. While most fear not getting sick, those that have been getting the deadly H1N1 flu are hoping to stay alive.

Dustin Wright, 30, of Euless, Texas, came down with the flu just a week before Thanksgiving. His wife Ashley Wright said, “He was achy, feverish, and chilled, nothing really more than that.”

Ashley then recounts that a few days later, her husband was struggling to breathe so she rushed him to the hospital. There, doctors told her he had the H1N1 strain, also known as swine flu. On December 5th, he passed away.

Ashley Wright said,” You don’t think it would happen to you, you know. We always worried about my son getting the flu shot. We’re never really worried about the two of us because you don’t really hear about any of this. You don’t think it will happen to you.”

Along with Wright, at least four other people have died from the swine flu in Texas. Health authorities say this year’s flu vaccine can prevent swine flu and several other flu strains if people get vaccinations per CBS News.

Dustin Wright nor his wife received the flu shot this year.

When asked what she wants other people to think about, Ashley Wright simply stated, “That things like this happen in your own backyard. You don’t think it will, but it does.”

Swine flu was blamed for about 12,000 U.S. deaths in 2009.

The peak of flu season is still yet to come in February, so there is still plenty of time to get your flu shot and stay safe.
