A Coryell County man is dead and another is fighting for his life after contracting the flu virus.

The Bell County man, whose death was confirmed yesterday, was in his 60's. Another man, in his 50's, is in a Bell County ICU, battling the virus.

Officials say flu numbers have been relatively high this year, as well as respiratory illnesses. For the first time ever, officials began offering "Quadrivalent" flu shots, in hopes of fighting four strains of the flu virus.
