BROOKLYN - Dr. Eric Legume, chief of emergency medicine at Kings County Hospital, says this year’s flu season has been less intense than it was last year.

Legume credits more vaccinations throughout the borough as a reason the flu bug has not been that harsh.

Dr. Legume says the recent cold weather does not cause the flu. However, he says it can spread in confined places. He urges people who may be sick to stay home so they don’t spread their symptoms to others.

He says it’s still not too late for people to get a flu vaccination.
