Your Health Minute

Doctors encouraged to get rid of the germs in their offices.

In Your Health Minute,  American Academy of Pediatrics advises mandatory flu shots for all office staff.

The group also recommends waiting rooms be stocked with alcohol-based sanitizers and masks along with signs about cough and sneeze etiquette.

But, doctors should not put out teddy bears and other plush toys because they absorb germs and are difficult to clean.
