The Iowa Department of Public Health says a child died last week because of the flu.

This is the first Iowa pediatric death this flu season.

Officials say they can’t release the name, age, or location of the child that died but they did say the child was not vaccinated.

Officials say three children nationwide died from the flu last week.

Despite the deaths, authorities are reporting declining flu activity both here in Iowa and across the nation.
