Medical experts are predicting a higher than normal flu season this year and heading into the holidays, doctors are urging people to get a flu shot.

Doctors say traditionally, flu spreads more rapidly during the holidays because people tend to be confined together at parties, dinners, etc. The best way to fight against the flu, is a flu shot.

They are easily available and in many cases little to no costs. Ochsner Health System’s Dr. Gerry Cvitanovitch appeared on WGMB Fox44 First edition to talk about the flu shot and administer one to morning news anchor, Gerron Jordan.
