FAIRFIELD — A Vallejo resident in his 40s has been confirmed by public health officials as the first 2013-14 Solano County death associated with the H1N1 virus.

The victim had “chronic medical conditions that put him at risk for severe illness,” wrote Dr. Bela T. Matyas, the Solano County health officer and Health and Social Services deputy director, in a news release.

Ten additional cases have been reported to the Solano County Public Health. These people are under the age of 65 and have been hospitalized in an intensive care unit. One was for Influenza B, four for Influenza and four for the H1N1 strain of Influenza A.

“This is a good time to remind our residents about the ways they can help protect themselves, their families and the rest of the community from influenza,” wrote Dr. Michael Stacey, Solano County’s chief medical officer and the deputy health officer, in a news release.

Solano County Public Health recommends these steps to avoid the flu:

  • Get the flu vaccine.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • Stay home when you are ill.

Solano County Public Health will give free flu vaccines from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 25 at the Kroc Center Health Fair, 586 E. Wigeon Way, Suisun City.

Additional vaccination clinics will occur in the future. Call 784-8077 for more information, including future vaccination clinic dates.

    But did you know the shot itself contains the virus

    I know it's a news story so I shouldn't expect too much information, but had this person received a flu shot prior to getting the flu? Getting a flu shot seems to be the take-away from this story; it would seem a prudent element of the story to know if the victim had or not a flu shot.

    Good question to ask. Two cases here in northern NV where the patients died.... Both HAD received the flu shot.

    Not too sure about that...There are numerous reasons where someone can die from this virus and really poor health to begin with is one of them. Waiting too long to get a shot might be a cause for dying. Death as a result of the shot is incredibly rare and unlikely.

    Those flu shots are nothing but poison. Everyone I know who has gotten the flu so far this Winter has had that flu shot. Do your research of flu shots and other vaccines and see what is in them. You will be surprised.
