I've had the flu before, and honestly I wouldn't wish it on ANYONE. It was horrible. And for many, it can be deadly. The last flu season claimed the lives of about 80,000 Americans, which is the highest number of flu deaths our country has seen in 40 years.
Things are looking up for this year, though. The FDA just approved a new flu drug for the first time in nearly 20 years! The new drug is a pill and available for anyone over the age of 12-years-old with a prescription.
As flu season is ramping up, make sure you get your flu shot and keep this new drug in mind in case you or someone you know gets sick!
