Do what you feel is best. When the flu went around last year, my daughter got it (and so did I). Most of her classmates had it as well. There was no difference in the level of sickness or amount of recovery time between us and the people we knew who got the Tamiflu. My hubby, who is a nurse, opted not to take it or give it to our other daughter, and they didn't get sick, but we know people who took it and still got sick. So basically, just do what you feel is best b/c doctors/nurses don't necessarily all agree about all of these MEDS.
