Lump Of Coal #2: Tamiflu Back Ordered

Saturday, December 22, 2012 // Uncategorized

Christmas lump of coal #1 is that the flu hit Texas early this year.  Today I found out from my local pharmacist, that he can’t get tamiflu, the most commonly used antiviral medication, because it is back ordered from the manufacturer.  The good news is that the strains of flu going around are represented in this years blend of flu vaccine.  Tamiflu is not terribly effective and is best reserved for the very old, very young and pregnant women.
