Tonight we're finding out more about the missiles... where they hit... and how u-s forces knew they were coming.

Cbs's david martin has the latest from the pentagon.

The missiles were launched from three different locations in western iran -- only minutes flying time from their targets in iraq.

U.s. officials estimate iran launched a total of 16 short to medium range missile -- mostly at al assad air base northwest of baghdad but also some at erbil in northern iraq.

Iranian television showed elaborate underground bunkers where the missiles could be prepared for launch out of sight from spy satellites.

Still, a defense official said the bases in iraq had "multiple hours" warning before the launches -- plenty of time for troops to take shelter in bunkers, a frequent drill since they are used to being shelled by local militias.

"our movements saved american lives," one officer said.

Trump: no american or iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces and an early warning system that worked very well.

Tag general milley said he expects iranian backed militias in iraq and elsewhere to continue attacking american positions, and just short time ago two rockets landed in baghdad's green zone outside the american embassy.

This time there were no casualties.

Take q's reentry the the c-d-c says the flu virus continues to spread... with many states reporting widespread cases// it's not too late to get vaccinated// we learn more about the flu shot in our health talk with baptist// hi, i'm dr. lee richardson, a physician in the emergency room at baptist memorial hospital - golden triangle.

Tonight i want to talk to you about the flu vaccine.

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year.

Yearly flu vaccination should begin as soon as the vaccine is available.

Most of the time flu peaks between december and february.

It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against flu virus infection.

The cdc recommends getting your flu shot by the end of october.

We are already seeing patients testing positive for the flu in the er.


Everyone six months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every year especially those at high risk such as people with chronic pulmonary disease such as asthma, cardiovascular , renal, hepatic, neurologic, hematologic, or metabolic disorders and people who are immunosuppress ed, including those with hiv.


You should also not get a flu shot if you have a severe, life- threatening allergy to any of the ingredients in the vaccine, especially eggs.

The flu shot cannot give you the flu.

The flu vaccine that is administered with a needle is made with either flu vaccine viruses that are inactive or are not infectious or with no flu vaccine viruses at all.

If you get flu- like symptoms, you may have some other respiratory virus beside flu or you were exposed to the flu shortly before getting vaccinated or during the two- week period after vaccination.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist when we will discuss common sense ways to keep from catching the flu this year.
