Some promising news from the Brazos County Health Department this week. There's been a decline in the number of reported flu cases. That said, we are still in the middle of an active flu season and there's still a threat of being infected with the virus.

According to reports from the Brazos County Health Department, the number of local flu cases spiked right around Christmas with 351 cases. By the end of last week, cases in Brazos County dropped to 29 reported cases.

Medical professionals say the best way to protect yourself and others around you is by getting the flu shot.

Tuesday on First News at Four we talked to medical experts from the Brazos County Health Department and the College Station Medical Center while they waited for questions to a flu hotline hosted by KBTX.
