A 53-year-old south-central Kansas woman dies from an infection related to the H1N1 flu virus. Seventeen deaths are now blamed on H1N1 in Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says the woman had an underlying health condition that put her at a greater risk of complications from influenza.
H1N1 vaccines are available in Kansas. Right now, those vaccines are only for those at the greatest risk of catching the virus.
