Bay Area: Four more swine flu deaths reported
By David DeBolt
Four more swine flu deaths were reported in the Bay Area Monday, two in the South Bay, one on the Peninsula and one in the North Bay, renewing calls from state health officials urging people to get vaccinated as the flu season’s peak approaches.
The recent deaths in Santa Clara, San Mateo and Sonoma counties come as pharmacies and Bay Area hospitals were receiving additional doses of flu vaccine to keep up with high demand that caused shortages in some locations last week. Officials in multiple counties, however, have said there is enough supply to go around.
