      Owasso Doctor: Flu Outbreak Slowing; Still, Get Your Shots!


      The flu outbreak in Oklahoma appears to be on the downside.

      Channel 8 spoke with an Owasso doctor, who says fewer people are being treated for the flu in his office.

      Still he says, stay vigilant to stop the spread.

      Wash your hands, cough into your elbow and stay home if you are sick.

      Doctor Jim Hanlon believes holiday travel caused the most recent spike.

      "You get on an airplane, and there's 180 people. And two or three of them have influenza, and they can spread everywhere."

      Hanlon adds, it isn't too late to get a flu shot, because there could be another spike in flu cases.
