When the flu hits, the last thing you want to do is run out to the store. So stock up on what you’ll need ahead of time.
While you may not be able to avoid the flu, there are things you can do to help reduce your risk of getting the flu.
If you do experience flu-like symptoms, the first thing you should do is contact your doctor. This will ensure that the best course of treatment is started early.
