LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seven more people have died in Indiana from flu-related illnesses -- and it's hitting young and middle-aged adults.

The Indiana State Department of Health says there have been 37 deaths so far this flu season. That's 10 fewer than last year.

The majority of the deaths are from people between the ages of 25 and 64. Last year, it was people older than 65.

Doctors say it's still not too late to get a flu shot since the season lasts until May.
