Check out what the experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say about the flu below.
Flu activity usually begins to increase in October and most commonly peaks between January and March.
CDC recommends that antiviral drugs like Tamiflu be used as early as possible in people who are very sick with the flu
It’s possible to get sick with the flu even if you have been vaccinated (although you won’t know for sure unless you get a flu test)
Nearly 60% of the flu-associated hospitalizations reported to CDC’s influenza surveillance system were in people 18 to 64 years old.
If you have symptoms of flu and are in a high-risk group, or are very sick or worried about your illness, the CDC recommends that you contact your health care provider (doctor, physician’s assistant, etc.).
Tamiflu is a prescription medicine used to treat the flu (influenza) in people 2 weeks of age and older who have had flu symptoms for no more than 2 days. Tamiflu can also reduce the chance of getting the flu in people 1 year and older.
Tamiflu does not prevent bacterial infections that may happen with the flu.
Tamiflu is not a substitute for an annual flu vaccination.
Do not take Tamiflu if you are allergic to oseltamivir phosphate or any of the ingredients in Tamiflu.
