MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin health officials say the child has died after developing the flu.
The Department of Health Services says the death occurred in southeastern Wisconsin, but declined to identify the child.
Children's Hospital of Wisconsin Physicians, Lyn Ranta, says the child's death shows how serious it is to take measures to protect children. Ranta says it's not too late in the river season for a vaccination.
