NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
Some people who get sick during the winter think they have the flu, but might actually have a different illness.
Many get the contagious "Norovirus," and getting a flu shot can't protect you from it.
Doctors offer a few suggestions to fight this type of stomach flu:

Keep household surfaces clean. Use bleach-based products
Wash your hands with soap and water
The germs are tough, and hand sanitizers won't work.
