(Undated) -- With all of the talk about Ebola, you might've forgotten the flu season is right around the corner. Doctor Susan Rehm says the CDC recommends three things for flu prevention. A flu shot is recommended for everyone six-months and older. Even if you still get the flu, the vaccine can help weaken the severity of the symptoms. The CDC says up to 20-percent of Americans will catch the flu this year, and more than 200-thousand of them will end up in the hospital.
