Four Colorado children have died from the flu since mid-january, making this the worst flu season for children in five years.
Colorado Health officials said Wednesday at least three of the children may not have gotten all the available vaccinations against the illness.
Two of the children died in the Denver area and two died on the western slope.
The state department of public health and environment says it’s too early to say whether the deaths signal a bad flu season or whether the increase is random.in 2003, the flu killed 12 children in Colorado. Since then, no more than two children had died in any single season.
