SLO Co. Public Health: Inmate death is first flu-related death of the season in county

San Luis Obispo County Public Health say the inmate who died this week is the first flu-related death in SLO County this season.

Officials report the man did not get a flu shot. Rudy Silva, 35, died Monday in the ICU at a local hospital.

Sheriff's officials said the inmate was diagnosed with the H1N1 strain of the virus.

Public Health says the best way to protect yourself from getting the flu is to get the vaccine. It is not too late to do so.
