At least four Galveston County residents have died after contracting different strains of the influenza virus, and another three died last weekend after experiencing flu-like symptoms, officials said Thursday.

Meanwhile, the influenza virus remains widespread in 25 states, including Texas, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prompting experts to urge inoculations midway through the flu season. The Galveston County Health District reported 955 influenza cases so far this season, up from 674 in roughly the same time frame last season.
