Preparing for an influenza epidemic

Posted by Martin Poulter on 8 May 2009

This TED video’s from 2007 and about the USA context, but still helpfully informative. I was suprised to learn that the number one side-effect of our stockpiled antiviral drug Tamiflu is “flu-like symptoms”. Doh!

Update: I incorrectly described Tamiflu as a “vaccine”. Thanks Ian S for putting me right.
