Lexington’s emergency rooms, doctor offices and quick clinics have waiting rooms full of flu victims. This wide spread strand seems to be taking out entire families and business offices one by one. In some cases, the flu can be life threatening.

While doctors say prevention is key, this year’s flu shot may not be as effective as year’s past. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that this year’s anticipated seasonal flu viral code doesn’t match the projected antigen that was in the first round flu shots. The CDC still recommends getting the flu shot, even though it may not be 100% effective.

Once patients have the flu, there is not much they can do to rid themselves. Managing symptoms with over-the-counter oral medicine only goes so far. A prescription for Tamiflu will manage systems better, but will not necessarily speed up the recovery.

So what can you do to prevent and treat the flu this season? Locally owned Rehydration station may have the answer.
