High fever. Body aches. Scratchy throat.
Maybe it’s the flu.
When flu season approaches, the best way to manage the flu is to prevent it – with a flu shot. A flu shot reduces your chance of getting the flu by up to 60%.
Even when you take all the precautions, when the flu hits, it hits hard. If you develop sudden symptoms during flu season, it might be the time to look beyond your mom’s chicken soup and watching TV in your pajamas.
The flu affects your lungs, nose and throat. Looking for signs you’re getting the flu? Symptoms include (but are not limited to) fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, congestion, runny nose, headaches and an overall feeling of fatigue.
Think it’s the flu? Stop by your local vybe urgent care, as soon as you start feeling sick.
Certain medicines may help reduce your flu symptoms and help you recover more quickly, if you get them in the first 48 hours.
