A new survey on parents' attitude toward the flu vaccine may shed light on why some continue to resist the flu shot, even though it could put their children in danger. Pneumonia has been the direct cause of death in another 38 deaths, and the flu or pneumonia have been contributing factors in an additional 132 deaths.

In the first week of the flu season, the state had only two flu or flu-like outbreaks. In Kansas, 193 deaths statewide were directly attributed to the flu. That was the most the state had experienced in three years.
