PHILADELPHIA -

Flu season is still months away, but doctors are encouraging parents to get their children vaccinated now!

Dr. Mike Cirigliano joined "Good Day Philadelphia" on Tuesday morning to explain why there is no reason to wait.

Dr. Mike also discussed why smokers gain weight when they quit smoking. It's apparently due to changes in bacteria in the intestines, whether we should all be taking probiotics, and how can it be that taller people are smarter, according to new research?
