Descriptions of Articles
  • Flu Outbreaks
    This segment of the eMedTV archives describes outbreaks of the flu throughout history. These outbreaks, such as the ones in 1918 and 1976, have the potential to spread quickly from person to person, especially when the strain of the virus is new.
  • Flu Prevention
    As this eMedTV segment explains, the flu vaccine is the best method for preventing the flu. However, there are certain medications that can help prevent the illness if you take them for at least two weeks during a flu outbreak in your community.
  • Flu Shot
    The flu shot contains inactive viruses currently in circulation and those that are expected to circulate. This eMedTV page explains who should get a shot, where it can be obtained, and potential side effects, and also describes the new nasal vaccine.
  • Flu Shots
    Flu shots, as this segment of the eMedTV archives explains, are based on both current and expected flu viruses. They do not cause the flu. Flu shots can be obtained at supermarkets, drugstores, and doctors' offices, among other places.
  • Flu Symptoms
    Sore throat, fever, and chills are a few common symptoms of the flu. This eMedTV segment explains flu symptoms in detail, including potential complications in adults, teenagers, and children.
