NEW YORK (CNN) – A 26-year-old health care worker died just days after getting sick with the flu. Her family says she got a flu shot but it didn’t work. Now, the newly-wed’s family hopes her story may save someone else.
Katie Mcquestion’s mom didn’t want to talk on camera but says her daughter was a picture of health. Beautiful smart, just married in September. Katie’s funeral was Tuesday, another victim of flu.
Katie graduated from UW Milwaukee as a radiology technician IM 2012 and worked at St. Catherine’s Medical Center in pleasant prairie.
Her mom said as part of her job she had to get a flu shot. Tragically, it didn’t keep her from getting sick. However, Kenosha County’s health officer say the vast majority of people who get a flu shot are helped by it.”
