Now many doctors are encouraging employees
and patients to get the flu shot. Dr. Shelley Jones of the Ouachita Parish Health
Unit says the best way of not contracting the virus this season is through
regular medical attention.
Jones says folks should also get plenty of rest, maintain a nutritious diet, and take daily vitamins to decrease the risk of contracting the flu.
Parish residents can visit their local pharmacy or health clinic to get the flu shot.
