There is a major effort underway to help stop the spread of the flu in Tulsa.

The Tulsa Heath Department and Hillcrest Healthcare System are bringing back the "Don't Bug Me" program.

The public awareness campaign started last year with posters, letters and other information. It is intended to let kids know the importance of preventative measures like good hand washing.

Tyra Palmer with Hillcrest Health System: "It is really very, very simple steps that children can take and hopefully learn and take home to their families to avoid the flu."

You can find more on the "Don't Bug Me" program at a special website.
