(BOISE) – At least three Idahoans have died this year from flu-related causes.

Two of those victims resided in southwest Idaho and one in southeast Idaho, and all were over the age of 50.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare is urging citizens to get their vaccinations, especially for those at higher risk such as infants, pregnant women, and people over 65.

In addition to getting the vaccine, other precautions can be taken such as getting plenty of rest and drinking lots of water.
