Recently, flu and sinus medications seem to be in short supply at several local pharmacies, which begs the question have there been higher instances of the flu virus or are citizens simply "stocking up" on such medications in the vein of prevention is better than the cure? It is important to note that it can not protect you from gastrointestinal strains. The flu can be especially serious for children, the elderly and those with weak immune systems.

Kasetty said people should also contact their health care providers as soon as they notice symptoms of influenza, as medical treatments for the flu are most effective when started within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms. For more information on influenza: here.

Dr. Holder also said it is not too late to get a flu shot. In other words, receiving the shot will not guarantee you have a flu-free season.

"It's always a good idea to get it - it doesn't have to be flawless", Hafiz said.
