"Tamiflu Againts the Avian Flu"
At first tamiflu was only been tested on strains of the influenza that were circulating at the time. The reason behind tamiflu was to effectively treat and prevent the novel strains of influenza that cannot be predicted.
However recent studies show that tamiflu is just as effective in preventing common flu symptoms if it is given before you contract the infection. Research that has been done does not effectively tell us whether the tamiflu vaccine is safe in people with compromised immune systems. Studies have been proven to show that if taken before the onset of flu symptoms, tamiflu can be just as effective or even more effective that the common flu vaccine.
The more resistance that we provide to the flu virus, the better we will become in the widespread effects of the flu will be.
