Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- You might want to take advantage of some mild temperatures this week to possibly keep you from getting sick.

Some health officials says it's a good idea to open your windows, even in the winter, to circulate new air into your home.

What also makes this timely, Doctors with Fargo-Cass Public Health say flu season seems to be peaking right now. And though opening windows is a good tip, it's not your best defense from getting that flu bug.

Dr. John Baird says, "to get your flu vaccine makes the biggest difference and that also protect yourself and others by washing your hands avoid passing infection on to other people."

Doctors say the common cold is also peaking in the public earlier than most years.
