TULSA, Oklahoma -

Some area kids have a message for the flu bug.

Students at Gilcrease Elementary danced while wearing bug antennae Tuesday, as part of a flu prevention campaign.

It's put on by the Tulsa Health Department and Hillcrest Medical Center.

The goal is to teach the kids about healthy lifestyle habits that will help stop the spread of the flu.

"The ideas with the song and the jingle is to have a little fun with it, but to remind them each day that they need to be doing this all day long," said the CEO of the Hillcrest healthcare system, Kevin Gross.

This is the ninth year for the "Don't Bug Me" campaign.
