In Monday's St. Joseph Health Scene Report, News 3 sat down with Dr. Gabriel Neal with the Brazos Physicians Group.

We wanted to know why it seems so many people are getting sick this season.

"No doubt the weather does wreak havoc on our respiratory system this time of year, but it is kind of something in the air," Neal said. "It's viruses and they're making their way through our community as we go to our parties and our holiday together events, people share germs and we get sick. The flu often times has high fevers, headaches and significant muscle pains. And if you get those kind of symptoms, those big three, then I'd say it's time to see your doctor."

About one in five Americans gets the flu every year. To stay healthy, Doctor Neal suggests to get plenty of rest, take your vitamins and wash your hands frequently.
