    Officials recommend residents to get a flu shot.

    Brevard County Health Department officials say a woman in her 30s has died of the flu.

    Florida Today reports the woman died Sunday at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne.

    Director Heidar Heshmati says two others — a pregnant woman in her 30s and a 62-year-old man — are on life support due to influenza. Heshmati says the woman refused to get the flu vaccination.

    Last week, Brevard County health officials issued a report warning of an uptick in flue activity. They urged anyone over 6 months old to get the flu vaccine.

    Heshmati did not release the names of woman who died, or the two patients on life support
