Symptoms do come on quickly and can also result in fever and headaches. Symptoms tend to subside on there own, but it can make some people seriously ill. It’s important to get the flu vaccine if you are advised to. The UK flu strains change every year and hence the vaccines are adjusted accordingly.

Sometimes the flu infection/chest flu can turn into a bacterial infection resulting in a chest infection; this is when you would require antibiotic treatment.
