Dr. Young,

I have a question. Isn't using Tamiflu just as effective as flu vax or flumist?


Response from Dr. Young

Tamiflu is a medication to treat influenza infection; both influenza vaccine and flumist are vaccinations to prevent or mitigate infection (the later should not be given to persons with HIV or their household contacts, since it is a live virus vaccine). BY

where is Pzifer?
rumor about Gilead Sciences?
