"The strength of the flu over her seizures when she had one and with the flu having trouble breathing it just caused her to go into cardiac arrest", said Jerry Hanks, Sydney's father.

Oklahoma is one of several states reporting widespread influenza activity, with children being especially hit hard.

Doctors say unless the symptoms are serious, it's best to stay home and prevent others from catching it. "The flu has started to run into people who are indeed vaccinated or who have already have the flu and they can no longer become infected".

While the flu season usually peaks between December and February, "It is not looking like we have reached the peak", said Ron Pundt, Coryell Memorial Healthcare System laboratory director.

Andrew DaSilva, the pharmacy manager for the Medicine Shoppe in Rockville told FOX61 they are filling several prescriptions for Tamiflu every day. Hours are from 7:30 a.m.to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. on Friday.

Getting the vaccine doesn't offer full protection, but if you do get the flu it can lessen the severity. She adds, everyone should wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and to do not forget to cover their cough.

Try to avoid close contact with someone who is sick. If you use a tissue, throw it away after one use.

For schools, clean and disinfect frequently-touched surfaces such as desks, door handles, keyboards, etc.
