Doctors urge citizens to get the flu shot

As our cold and flu season begins, doctors look towards countries in the Southern Hemisphere who are completing their season to determine what ours might look like.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices noted concerns for a potentially severe flu season.

Because of this local doctors, the CDC and the Advisory Committee are urging anybody ages 6-months-old or older receive the flu vaccination before the end of October.

"This includes people who have conditions that compromise their immune system as well as pregnant women," said Dr. Shana Peper, internist at Methodist Physicians Clinic Indian Hills.
