The flu vaccine is the best defense against the flu, and may reduce the severity of symptoms. If you have already caught the flu this season, you should still get vaccinated as it can help protect you from other circulating strains. Getting rest and staying hydrated is critical. Antivirals like Tamiflu are available with a prescription and can help
reduce flu symptoms if started within 48 hours. For the common cold, there are many over-the- counter products that can help with symptom management.
