When to see a doctor

If you have flu symptoms and are at risk of complications, see your doctor right away. Taking anti-viral drugs within the first 48 hours after you first notice symptoms may reduce the length of your illness by a day or two and may help prevent more serious problems. Seek immediate medical care if you have signs and symptoms of pneumonia. These include a severe cough that brings up phlegm, a high fever and a sharp pain when you breathe deeply. If you have bacterial pneumonia, you’ll need treatment with antibiotics.

The CDC recommends that you receive a flu shot if you meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • All persons who want to reduce the risk of becoming ill with influenza or of transmitting influenza to others
  • All children aged 6 months to 18 years old
  • All persons aged 50 years and older
  • Children and adolescents (aged 6 months to 18 years) receiving long-term aspirin therapy
