Flu Season Keeps Doctors and Clinics Busy

Flu season is back with an early vengeance this year.

Clinics and doctors in Northern Michigan are starting to see a flow of people coming in with symptoms.

The Walk-In Clinic in Traverse City tells us that they've seen quite a few staff members with influenza — but haven't treated too many patients with it.

They say it's important to get vaccinated, because the flu is an illness that comes suddenly, and is very contagious.
