Yeah? Well, I think I caught the seasonal flu yesterday.
Stuffy and tired today. Testing with some saved antibiotics just to see if it's bacterial or viral.
Saved antibiotics? Oh my...
If you have 'saved' antibiotics then you may have undertreated a previous illness, and it is likely that you are now taking them for something viral.
I know you aren't the only person who does this, but from a public health perspective it's a disastrous choice. It isn't likely to benefit you and it IS likely to increase bacterial resistance.
no, it's a week old.
My daughter had some convulsive vomiting last weekend and they put her on that till the tests were in. Tests were negative, so had it left over. I doubt I have the same thing, but worth a day's test to see if it provides any improvement. If not, garbage.
I'm not entirely sure, but ...
I think the recommendation for beginning the seasonal flu immunization campaign early is based on a desire to avoid giving the seasonal flu vaccine at the same time as the H1N1 'swine' vaccine. The swine vaccine won't be out for a while (probably late October). If there are problems with one vaccine they want to be able to figure out which was the culprit. Problems aren't likely, but it is best to be a bit cautious.
For people who don't need the swine vaccine there is no particular reason to get the seasonal vaccine early.

Sorry but linking to your web site in your post is not a good idea.
