If I was going to travel now I would get TAMIFLU just in case I needed it. TAMIFLU is an anti viral drug that was not effective in treating bird flu but seems to be effective in treating the swine flu. You need to take TAMIFLU with in the first 48 hours once you have flu symptoms. If you plan to travel soon, ask your Dr if you can get TAMIFLU to take with you just in case you need it! HERE is more information on TAMIFLU.
