Doctors will be a holding a media availability on Wednesday to debunk flu shot myths that could be holding people back from getting this valuable virus defense.

“It is a safe estimate less than 10 percent of the patients we see in our Northwoods facility say they’ve had a flu shot,” said Roper St. Francis ER Dr. John Walters. “Patients often tell us they don’t want a flu shot because it will make them sick, a myth that has spread too far.
