Too late, the flu in our neck of the woods is in full gear, (GA) luckily is a mild version, so far my husband, son and daughter (an emergency room
nurse) have the flu already, my daughter even got the flu shot a month ago.
48 hours low fever ranging from 100 to 102
cough with production of phlegm with no sore throat or runny nose and stuffiness
Body aches and pains for two days
killer headaches lasting two to three days.
Then you are back to normal, but the cough will last up to one month and may need prescription cough medicine to control it.
I was the only one in the family that has not gotten the this particular flu even after nursing everybody else back to health
And not I have not gotten the flu shot and I would not get it either as I have not gotten a flu shot since the 80s.
My last memorable flu was in the mid 90s when we all were put in bed rest with it, lasted two weeks, we didn't need any doctors.
My daughter say that this flu is the bulk of the emergency room visit for the last month.
So far not deaths as a result.
