Dear flu
Tamiflu is one of the drugs that they are "saving" to use if a birdflu epidemic breaks out, and we don't want to use it for normal flu as the virus will develop resistance against it. Tamiflu also needs to be taken within 24 hours or it won't help. It is much more cost effective and useful to take the flu vaccine yearly.
