Three more people have died from swine flu in Alabama.     

State health officials announced the deaths Thursday. The state's number of fatalities from the virus is now at 11.   

The latest to die are a man in his 60s from Talladega County, a woman in her 50s from Madison County, and a female in her 70s from Jackson County.      

Previous deaths of persons positive for swine flu have occurred this year in Bullock, Dale, Houston, Jackson, Jefferson, Macon, Montgomery and Russell counties.     

Health officials say the rising number of deaths is a reminder of the need for everyone to take steps to prevent transmission of disease and to be immunized for both seasonal and swine influenza.
