TULSA, Okla. - Eleven more Oklahomans have died from the flu in the last week. Eight of those deaths were in Green Country.

The state Health Department released new flu numbers Thursday.

Pharmacies are keeping busy helping people bounce back from the flu, but some workers said they think the worst of the flu is behind them.

Sarah Devos is thankful her two sons haven’t gotten the flu.

“I just think it’s horrible,” she said.

This is a much busier flu season than we’ve seen in several years.

FOX23 talked with Hillcrest’s emergency room doctor about what he’s seeing.

“I think it’s tapering off a little bit. I’m not sure what the statistics say. My observation is that we’ve been less busy, seeing fewer people with influenza this week than we had been for sure,” said Dr. Jeff Dixon.

Devos said she’ll keep on having her little boys wash their hands extra until this flu season ends.

“We all were vaccinated. My husband and I had the flu shots and my two sons had flu mists,” she said.
