Widespread influenza causes long wait times at emergency rooms statewide
ADHS advises everyone to get vaccinated immediately

There’s plenty of remedies for the flu on the shelves at CVS in Cottonwood, but the pharmacy is out of Tamiflu, a popular antiviral medicine for treatment of flu which must be prescribed by a doctor, according to CVS Pharmacist Dan Tutelman on Friday. The local pharmacist said he has called pharmacies all over Northern Arizona looking for Tamiflu, but everyone seems to have run out early because of the unusual flu season. CVS Pharmacy is giving flu shots everyday now and he said it’s not too late for this season. The season extends into February and March. It’s more dangerous for children under two and seniors over 65 years of age, he pointed out, because of a less of  an immune response. It takes two weeks for a flu shot to take effect, the pharmacist added. VVN/Vyto Starinskas
