Ryan Nall, MD, a physician and Assistant Professor at the University of Florida spoke to TV20′s Yaremi Farinas about the flu season on the November 13th “Medical Spotlight” segment. In the interview, he promotes the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s suggestion for anyone 6 months of age and older to receive a flu shot in order to prevent developing the flu and prevent spreading the flu to others. With the flu season already here and expected to “peak in December or January,” Dr. Nall advised viewers to visit a local doctor’s office, health department, or pharmacy in order to get vaccinated and to stay at home if you develop the flu to prevent spreading it to others.
Dr. Nall is a David Calkins Division of General Medicine Public Advocacy Award recipient and member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society.
