Not a doc-but my daughter had 7 days of fever w/this flu-she eats well and is an athlete. I ran for the vaccine. I never saw it this bad. W/o help (constant fluids) you could die!! Everyone should get the vaccine.
Deme,, people can get really sick with the flu and many that get it will suffer down time and some have to put in the hospital,, gettin the flu shot can save your life,, trust me, you don't want the flu, you will be hatin life for several days if you get it and basically, you have to treat the symptoms, cause ya can't cure it,,
What is really scarey to me is the BIRD FLU,, that has the potential to kill off 1/3 of the world population and they usually come every 100 years and we are close to the last pandemic now,,
