Flu cases increasing in Southeast Texas

BEAUMONT-By: Leslie Rangel

Doctors are urging everyone to get the vaccine to limit the risk of getting the flu. 
One sign it's becoming worse is one day this month more than 100 students from the Hardin Jefferson High School were absent with the flu or flu related symptoms. 

A Beaumont pediatrician, Dr. Raja Ataya says the most effective way to prevent the flu is by getting your flu vaccine. 

"Everybody after the age of 6 months should receive that vaccine. It's a very easy vaccine. The side effects are very minimal," Ataya said. 

They also suggest washing hands regularly with soap and water and carrying around hand sanitizer. Flu cases increasing in Southeast Texas
