About 130 million Americans receive the flu vaccine each year and serious side effects are considered extremely rare.
According to theSalt Lake Tribune, Utah health officials are aware of the case, but would not comment on the cause of death or whether there is an investigation taking place. The state has never recorded a death as being caused by the flu vaccine.
