FLU VACCINE IS THE BEST PROTECTION AGAINST FLU
Getting a flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against flu.
Symptoms and Treatment
If you get sick with flu symptoms call your doctor right away. There are antiviral drugs that can treat flu illness and prevent serious flu complications. CDC recommends prompt treatment for people who have influenza infection or suspected influenza infection and who are at high risk of serious flu complications, such as people with asthma, diabetes (including gestational diabetes), or heart disease. Early treatment of influenza in hospitalized pregnant women has been shown to reduce the length of the hospital stay.
Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea. People may be infected with the flu and have respiratory symptoms without a fever.
