This has been a terrible year for the Flu! No surprise to you all. But when I asked fellow Director of the Samoa Peninsula Fire District Hal Grotke, MD California Academy of Family Physicians about the flu, he pointed out that flu can be treated and cured if treated within 48 hours. He said after that, he could only treat the symptoms. He also noted that 12 deaths have been attributed to the flu in Humboldt County this year.
Note: I highly recommend Dr. Grotke for a physician if you are looking for health care locally. He is just a good regular guy without BS. "Just call me Hal." Dr. Grotke and his wife Alice (Who serves on the Peninsula Union School Board of Trustees) live on the peninsula and are community involved.
