Flu shots can't cause the flu, but this is perhaps the most persistent of the myths about the flu vaccine.
Antibiotics have no effect against a viral illness like the flu.
Annual seasonal-flu vaccinations will start on November 1. A new vaccine is administered each year based on the circulating strains of the virus during the winter. This year, the vaccine contains three strains of the flu virus: two type A strains and one type B. This seasonal-flu includes the influenza A(H1N1) strain, responsible for the pandemic occurend in 2009.
Develop a battle plan against the flu this year. Know what you will be up against, get the facts on prevention, learn tips for a quick recovery, and find out when it is appropriate to seek further medical attention.
