Flu is here folks.This is from the Health Protection Agency Website (http://www.hpa.org.uk/web/HPAweb&HPAwebStandard/HPAweb_C/1222154877315):

'Clinical and virological indicators suggest that influenza viruses are now circulating within the community. The
department of health now recommend the use of antivirals for treatment and prophylaxis of influenza according to
NICE guidance. Further information can be found on the NICE website (http://www.nice.org.uk/Guidance/TA158).'

The guidance recommends making sure your family have been immunised against flu and to take prophylactic medication if you come in contact with someone who has flu.

Although I have had my flu jab the chances that it worked are small - see Terry Hamblin's post about Flu Jab on 3rd Jan.Iam asking my consultant and GP whether I should have prophylactic drugs with me over the annual 'closed' season. Will let you know.
